From my understanding, that will just ignore the file, and not the
directory that file is in?

The man page says:
       --exclude-if-present filename
              Exclude directories if filename is present. This option needs to  
come  before  any
              other include or exclude options.

I use it extensively to remove directories from my backup set: temp and cache directories and other directories where the files are either discardable or can be easily recreated.
