Normally yes, but in this case the backups are rsync
hardlink snapshot based and managed with a script that
does timestamp directory management, so a change in file
stat is seen as a need to duplicate data and preserve
data for each mode.

Which is the box I'm thinking in, but indeed, a manual
rsync -a may indeed be the easiest way to bootstrap
proper uid/gid/mode on the backup side.
