That doesn't matter.  You are talking to it as a local path (what
network mounting does).  Therefore you are stuck in --whole-file.

If whatever you are rsyncing to supports either rsync over ssh or
straight rsync then you can use user at host:/path or host::module
instead of the local network mount path.
