You could embed the example in \dontrun{}. Does BiocCheck detect cases
where the entire example is not run?

Btw, I'm pretty suspicious about this R function that takes no arguments
and downloads an Excel file. Seems like the file could be bundled with the
package, or internally lazily downloaded and cached with BiocFileCache.
