--log-file-format seems to be ignored?

I'm using Rsync 3.0.5 between two Debian boxes. I have an rsync
script setup that uses --log-file=mylogfile.log and also I have
specified --log-file-format=whatever. But I can't seem to get the
--log-file-format to be recognized. I don't get any sort of errors,
but the log format that I get is just the default, no matter how I
change the format option.
Just for simplicity's sake, I first tried
Which (according to the man pages) should simply write a line with the
date/time and then the filename that is synced.
Am I doing something wrong? Is it not supposed to be in quotes? Is
it supposed to be in parenthesis? I have tried many different
combinations of things and I just can't seem to get my log files to be
formatted in anything but the default.
Also, at one point I thought, oh well maybe specifying the log format
only applies toward the default log that rsync saves which is
specified in the rsyncd.conf file. But on these Debian boxes, I can't
seem to find an rsyncd.conf anywhere. They are web servers for my
company, not my own boxes, so its a little bit unfamiliar to me. All
I know is that 'locate rsyncd.conf' does not return any results.
