If you are using rsync with '-XAavz' you are actually doing this:

-X                preserve extended attributes
-A                preserve ACLs (implies -p)
    -p             preserve permissions
-a                archive mode; equals -rlptgoD (no -H,-A,-X)
    -r             recurse into directories
    -l             copy symlinks as symlinks
    -p             preserve permissions
    -t             preserve modification times
    -g             preserve group
    -o             preserve owner (super-user only)
    -D             same as --devices --specials
        --devices               preserve device files (super-user only)
        --specials              preserve special files
-v              increase verbosity
-z              compress file data during the transfer

Note that '-X' preserves Extended Attributes.
