I'm not sure about your specific rsync warning message but if you have
singleinstancestore: yes in imapd.conf, Cyrus does use hardlinks to
refer to multiple copies of the same message.

If Thunderbird copied the messages then removed the original, Cyrus
probably created a hardlink to the message in the new directory, then
removed the old hardlink.
