You mean like "var/mail/" having nothing, and
"var/spool/anacron/cron.daily" having 9 100% [...]

The former is a directory (and unchanged).  The latter is a file that
(appears to have) had a 9 byte update.

Yep, pretty much it's:

Line 1 -> 128,033 files on the side initiating the sync
Line 2 -> 127,995 files needed to be created / updated

IIRC it's bytes we sent to the other end, and bytes the other end sent
back to us (ACKs, other stuff).  I've got a big guide on rsync around
here somewhere, will send a link if I dig it up.
