The code for storing file attributes does not honour the --preserve option (though it accepts the parameter), no attributes are preserved, attributes are only preserved when using the sync command.
The timestamp isn't even preserved with the sync command, at least not as default. The help screen says it's default for sync, yet the timestamps are from when the files are sync'd, not the original times on the files. (Haven't tried making it explicit yet.) This is with 1.6.1.
