Since then I've been rsyncing all my data using that
switch, and so far haven't seen any issues with it.

The man page on it says the only problem that can be
caused by it is if rsyncing TO a Solaris filesystem,
which can't handle the switch and garbles the files.

Either way, any rsync's I do from now on will contain
it.
