No, rsync expects you to handle just appended files in --append mode. You
should use include/exclude/filter rules to ensure that the files in the
transfer are only those that are known to be growing via appended data or
you risk rsync adding data onto a file with an earlier change and thus
create a quick-check false-match. For the non-append run you might
consider using --inplace, or just exclude all files that are being updated
