Yes, it is possible to create new content types in a custom module
which do not use the node API, and therefore do not store any data in
the node related tables.  You opt out of a lot of the added
functionality (e.g. taxonomies) that comes automatically with nodes,
unless you write additional code for your module to make those
functions available.

You will have to write code to handle all of insert, update, search
and delete operations on your module's database table.

All of this assumes I'm actually answering the question you are
asking.  I'm not entirely sure on that account.
