In addition to what Kevin said, if you are rsync-ing to a SAMBA share, you
will be limited to what the SAMBA server supports and not all are
configured to enable ACL support.

>[root at kw al]# getfacl /mnt/backup/rootdir/var/log/journal/remote getfacl:

This implies that the ACLs can be read, but it says nothing about whether
the local system has the rights to delete the default ACLs from
var/log/journal/remote.  You need to test this with something like

  setfacl --remove-default \
