Question about stats on crafted items

Ok, so first off, I can't find a search function for forums, thus, sorry if this question has been answered elsewhere.

I have the ability to craft light armor with Shield Rating and Absorption stats on them. I know of no class that wears light armor as its primary that uses a Shield generator. I am unclear on why these stats would be on light armor. Does Shield Rating give you a chance to block damage despite the fact that you don't have a shield? And conversely, Absorption rate is based on shielding something in the first place, yes?

Sith inquisitors still wear light armor and also wear shield generators as a tank. I believe they use the word glance in the scrolling combat text instead of shield though but is based off of shield stats.

Smugglers should have access to medium armor.

This I was unaware of, but the main question still stands. If you don''t have a shield equipped, do shield related stats give you anything?
