If it is showing a timestamp difference then rsync had to process that file. 
If you were running with --whole-file then it actually did copy the file.  If
you aren't then it verified the contents and copied any parts of the file that
were different.  Either way, the output happens before rsync has any idea if
there are differences or not.  Also, if you are using advanced backup options
like --link-dest then rsync will write out a new file just for a t difference. 
Therefore it is absolutely expected that these be listed.
