I'll take a look.
I think this is a good example, but I do want to stress that I think it should include the phrase "for local connections only" since the rsync protocol provides no cryptographic protections against snooping on the data, and it's therefore better to pipe over ssh (or bbcp) when sending data over the internet.
Return the issue to the pool.
I've added this as part of review D28882.

inetd: Add examples from manual page and other sources
The manual page lists a bunch of examples, some of which already exist
in this file. Since it's both easier to remember when all examples are
listed in the same location, move examples so they get installed into
This also means users won't have to copy-paste, but can simply
uncomment one or more services to use them.
As such, it also becomes necessary to remove the examples from the
manual page, so instead add a note explaining where the previous
examples as well as others may be found.
Cross-references, including to ports, have also been added where
The rsync example has lived in the bug tracker for too long,
considering how useful it can situationally be, for example when
backup jobs on client devices are run through periodic(8) weekly.
The microsoft-ds entry is necessary for Windows 10 compatibility
(this can be confirmed with packet capturing, as it is not readily
documented at time of writing).
While here, remove two examples for which compatible daemons could not
be found in ports.
