No, rsync doesn't do anything on the source-side except read things
(unless --remove-sent-files is specified, in which case it also removes
things).  If your timestamps on the source are changing, something else
is changing them.  (You may wish to verify that the timestamps on the
source are the ones that are changing and not the destination -- rsync
updates the files when the timestamps are different, but you don't know
for sure which side has the changed timestamps unless you investigate.)
