It makes sense that it works. Rsync isn't disabling the
--bwlimit option just because the source and destination are
both local. Look at the manpage to see that --bwlimit
has nothing to do with what the fd is connected to and
everything to do with actual data transfers.
Of course even with the bandwidth limited it will be much
faster talking to an rsync process running on the remote
machine than localy on SMB. An order of magnitude faster if
you don't use --whole-file and --ignore-times. But i can
understand running on SMB if you don't manage the other
