Would appreciate if someone is able to help perhaps suggest if i should report this as a bug. Firstly, no issue with creating contacts from the supplier template however, these contacts created appear as customers when the customer box is not ticked while creating the supplier.
Secondly, once the contact is created and opened, the accounting tab is activated and accounting properties such as (Default Debit / Credit accounts) need to be filled in. In my opinion, contacts should not be auto generated into the customer / supplier template.
the issue is larger than just for suppliers and it has been largely debated ultimately and OpenERP SA even started to admit there is an issue. See bug and discussion here:

I also started to code a monkey-patch module that brings a new contact_id field on every OpenERP business documents so that you can use it for arbitrary contact while an on_change properly sets the regular partner_id field, ensuring that only the related commercial entity goes here (that is the related company or physical person). Hence, invoices will be using companies, not the contact which BTW kills reporting. Here is the announce of the beta version of this module:

In any case, yes, there is sadly a bad issue about this in OpenERP v7 and the scariest is the way they plan to "fix" it as it's debated in the bug tracker.
Hope this helps.
