That's not what --one-filesystem limits.  The man page explains it fairly well:

This tells rsync to avoid crossing a filesystem boundary when recursing.  This
does not limit the user’s ability to specify items to copy from multiple
filesystems, just rsync’s recursion through the hierarchy  of  each directory 
that  the  user  specified, and also the analogous recursion on the receiving
side during deletion.

So, no limit is place on files that make it into the transfer -- they get
transferred.  While it would be possible to add a destination check to see if a
particular existing file is on a different filesystem from the starting one,
that is not something that I plan to add.
