Only root can change ownership AFAIK.

Correct.  Nothing can change the ownership of the files in the repository
unless the server is running with root permissions during the backup.  The
preserve-numerical-ids option can still affect the ownership of restored
files (again, if the restore process is running with root permissions) if
the files are being restored to a system with different UID <> Owner or
GID <> Group mappings than were present on the system from which the
files were backed up.
