Must be just you:

$ rpm -q rsync

from man rsync:

-e, --rsh=COMMAND
This option allows you to choose an alternative
remote shell program to use for communication
between the local and remote copies of rsync. By
default, rsync will use rsh, but you may like to
instead use ssh because of its high security.

You can also choose the remote shell program using
the RSYNC_RSH environment variable.
