How to stop gzclient from updating the database during startup?

I installed gazebo 11.1.0 with ros2-foxy and have an issue with the way it starts:

gzclient --verbose

Gazebo multi-robot simulator, version 11.1.0

[Msg] Waiting for master.
[Msg] Connected to gazebo master @
[Msg] Publicized address:
[Wrn] [] Warning: Deleting a connection right after creation. Make sure to save the ConnectionPtr from a Connect call
[Msg] Waiting for model database update to complete...

This takes around 30 seconds every time I start the client. I used wireshark to check what's going on and gzclient is talking to and creates a HTTP connection for every model. Is there a way to either speed this up or better yet, completely disable this function?
