Detection of permission changes

is rsync supposed to detect permission change only (if other attributes are equal at
both source and target)?

I'm able to synchronize permissions by -p when the file changes (e.g. its
timestamp when -t is used) but otherwise the sole permission change of
the file (e.g. via chmod u-w file) remains unnoticed.

Any hint?
