Sure, there's several things you could be doing inconsistently that
would cause that result.  However, you haven't given enough information
for anything more than wild speculation, which I'm not in the mood for
at the moment.

However, in your original request you asked how you could always get
rsync to set the ownership to a constant value, and the answer was a
good one (albeit rather cryptic):  perform your local copying to a
localhost rsync daemon.
