I understand from the docs (attached below) that by default, filter rules apply to both sides.
An s is used to indicate that the rule applies to the sending side.
When a rule affects the sending side, it prevents files from being
transferred. The default is for a rule to affect both sides unless
--delete-excluded was specified, in which case default rules become
sender-side only. See also the hide (H) and show (S) rules, which
are an alternate way to specify sending-side includes/excludes.
An r is used to indicate that the rule applies to the receiving side.
When a rule affects the receiving side, it prevents files from being
deleted. See the s modifier for more info. See also the protect (P)
and risk (R) rules, which are an alternate way to specify
