It depends on the direction you're copying. The current developer version
of the rsyncd.conf.5 man page says
The "exclude" option allows you to specify a space
separated list of patterns to add to the exclude list.
This is equivalent to the client specifying these pat-
terns with the --exclude option, except that the
exclude list is not passed to the client and thus only
applies on the server: that is, it excludes files
received by a client when receiving from a server and
files deleted on a server when sending to a server, but
it doesn't exclude files sent from a client when send-
ing to a server or files deleted on a client when
receiving from a server.
