"Note: To use this parameter with remote computers, the local and remote computers must be configured for remoting. Additionally, you must start Windows PowerShell by using the "Run as administrator" option in Windows Vista and later versions of Windows."

Get-WmiObject is not dependent on remoting no matter what parameter you use. It uses DCOM and built-in job capabilities and doesn't have any connection to PowerShell remoting. Also, -AsJob doesn't need a privileged session.
