Those options just affect what files in the file-list may be transferred.  If
they actually excluded files from the file-list, the receiving side would not
be able to correctly handle a --delete option.

You should instead sub-set the directory using an exclude, such as
--exclude='dir/[a-m]*' for one run, and --exclude='dir/[n-z]*' for the other
(or something similar).
