Yes, it's meant to check that, and if things are current, it should do
nothing.  

IIRC the cronjob checks on the "reserve" partition; it may be that
although your active partition is current, but the reserve partition
hasn't updated yet.  Perhaps that's the case?

Now I think about it, it might make sense to do the rsync locally from
the active to the reserve in that case, to avoid unnecessary network
traffic.
