I assumed that the cygwin library would map the internal mode change
into an appropriate external change on the filesystem.  However, since I
try to avoid MS Windows whenever possible, someone else will need to
answer if my assumption is incorrect in the case you're experiencing.

(Also, I meant to type --chmod=u+w, not --chmod=o+w in my prior email.)

I'm referring only to the official rsync that I maintain.
