No, rsync doesn't change filesnames at all.  You should be looking for
external reasons for the inconsistencies, such as inconsistent case in
the source filename arguments (when combined with a case-ignoring
filesystem), the copying from a case-honoring filesystem to a
case-ignoring filesystem with overlapping directory names, and/or
behind-the-scenes filesystem re-mapping of names.
