That's correct - if -n is requested, no actual synchronisation is performed and, thus, there are no (new/updated) files requiring their modification times changed.
> Another question, suppose we first synced some number of directories with the -p. Then if we were to the same directories again it should copy/sync nothing over right? Since the first sync had the -p and made the new files have the same permissions and mod-times.
That's correct, if the same command is run twice (with -p both times), there should be no synchronisation/changes performed.
