Setting destination permissions while keeping real permissions in xattr

Is there any way with rsync to completely set file permissions on 
destination (like 0440 for files and 0550 for directory) while still 
memorizing real (source) permissions in extended attributes (with 
--perms and --fake-super) ?
--chmod is of no help in this case.
I've been using rsync for a long time but wasn't able to find a way to 
do this other than fixing permissions after transfer.
