There have been a lot of bug fixes in compare dest over time, including proper
determination of files not really being equal due to things like permission
differences, xattr differences, etc.  (All depending on what you tell rsync to
preserve.)  I'd imagine this is one of the instances that earlier rsyncs got
wrong.  e.g., in your test case, you'd need to specify --no-t if you don't want
a different mtime to cause the files to be unequal.
