is this default, I don't understand the manpage?

No, not default.

The default is only to verify the timestamp, size, permissions... I use
"--checksum", IIRC the option.

And it is CPU intensive and slow. I'm unsure of the performance
implications if done over a remote source, which can be via ssh or via
rsync daemon.

If you are using XFS partitions, there are very fast applications for
backup/restore. You can either dump an image, or a file copy. Speed is
impressive, but there is no verification. What I do then is use xfs
tools to do the initial copy, then an rsync verification run.
