It is important to define what is meant by "rsync". For example, a
common rsync operating mode is to simply compare whole-file timestamps
and file size in order to determine that a file has changed.
However, zfs surely works at the zfs block level so it does more work
due to files being comprised of multiple blocks.
Rsync may be executed in a mode (--checksum) by which it compares
blocks of data. This mode would be considerably slower.
