Possible exclude bug in 2.5.5 in rsyncd.conf

I've found some behavior in 2.5.5 that is contrary to the documentation
in the man page.
Specifically, I'm running an rsync server (i.e. from inetd with
--daemon),and in the module definition I'm specifying the line "exclude
nosyncdir". The documentation for rsyncd.conf indicates that this is
exactly equivalent to using "--exclude nosyncdir" on the client side.
I'm finding, however, that if I specify it on the server side, it's
ignored, and the dir structure of nosyncdir and below is transferred.
If I use the client side option however, it works as expected, that
being the nosyncdir dir structure is not transferred.
I've tried the variations *nosyncdir*, *nosyncdir/*, nosyncdir,
nosyncdir/* and nosyncdir* - none of them work on the server side.
Hopefully someone can shine some light on this, either to confirm that
it's a bug or correct my syntax if it's off.
