No, there was a similar discussion recently:

svnsync will create each revision from your master even if it is not
allowed to read actual data because of path based access restrictions
on the master or simply because you provided a wrong root path on
initializing the repo for syncing. You need to compare repo contents,
e.g. using a client and some svn ls operations or dumping your soiurce
and target repos and comparing their sizes or something similar.

I think it doesn't harm and is easily removable by svnadmin, but
others will know for sure. Besides that, more important to consider is
that your new repos should have got new UUID each, meaning they are
incompatible with your current working copies now. Each working copy
needs to be checked out again, svn relocate doenst work because of the
new UUIDs, you didn't just moved your repos but created new ones, or
you have to manually set the new reop's UUID to the old ones using
svnadmin setuuid. In the latter case you have to make sure that both
repos do have exactly the same content, meaning now revisions
committed after syncing etc.

Mit freundlichen Grüßen,
