Correct. According to OLDNEWS, --only-write-batch was added in rsync

The source package's "make install" puts the executable
at /usr/local/bin/rsync by default; it won't replace any rsync
executables you might have elsewhere on the machine. If the wrong
version of rsync is being invoked, try using the full
path /usr/local/bin/rsync .
