Are you using the appropriate rsync switch to copy Extended Attributes?
 From rsync man page:

-X, --xattrs
This option causes rsync to update the remote extended attributes to be 
the same as the local ones.This will work only if the remote 
machine’srsync supports this option also. This is a non-standardoption.
