I think it depends on your rsync :-)

rsync  version 3.0.9  protocol version 30

       -A, --acls                  preserve ACLs (implies -p)
       -X, --xattrs                preserve extended attributes

The standard one with Solaris 11 seems to do ACLs but not xattrs:

 > /bin/rsync --help
rsync  version 3.0.8  protocol version 30
     64-bit files, 64-bit inums, 32-bit timestamps, 64-bit long ints,
     socketpairs, hardlinks, symlinks, IPv6, batchfiles, inplace,
     append, ACLs, no xattrs, iconv, symtimes
