No. Replication is supposed to work regardless of mode, refreshOnly / 
refreshAndPersist should yield identical results.

Logically the entry must be deleted on the consumer but in refreshOnly mode
the provider cannot detect and propagate this change without the use of the
session log."

The above text is correct, but it is talking about partial replication where 
the syncrepl search filter causes only a subset of the entries to be 
replicated. That does not apply to your case because you haven't set any 
special filter in your syncrepl config.

There is still a bug here.
