The portion that "updates metadata cache" has nothing to do with what
ebuilds are in the tree. It simply takes the server-side caches (
pregenerated ) and sync them into your local cache. You could RSYNC
exclude the whole tree and this will still happen for every package,
since the metadata is generated on the server ( and the server has the
whole tree ).
Now if you were to rsync exclude metadata/ you would reduce the
- --metadata portion...because it wouldn't happen ;)
