Deleted symlinks when receiveing files with the same name

I would like to know if the following rsync's behavior can be
I noticed that when rsync receive a file for which the local filesystem
already has a symlinks with the same path/name, it _first_ delete the
symlink, _then_ it start the transfer.
I think there are two problems with this approach:
- it completely ignores the content of the symlinked files, which can be
used to speedup the transfer;
- if the transfer goes interruped/stopped, the receiving side remains
without the symlink and without the to-be-received file. In other words,
a file "seems" lost.
I did some test with the verious delete-after (and similar) options, but
they do not change anything.
I am missing something?
