It is only 100% with the --checksum option, which requires both sides
of the rsync to read every file that has matching metadata.  Almost
nobody uses this option as a result as it is A LOT slower.  zfs and
btrfs can reliably detect any modification to a file (whether it be in
the data or the inode) without having to read anything but the
metadata, and using a btree search it doesn't even have to check most
of the metadata.
