Ooops - missed it in the long man page - from a Hardy box,

"For  remote  transfers, a modern rsync uses ssh for its
communications, but it may have been configured to use a different
       remote shell by default, such as rsh or remsh."

I can't tell you when that changed.  I wouldn't at all be suprised if
it's exactly as you say on many Unixes etc...
