I have not delved into exactly what is not copied, but I've been using SD! for over 6 years (would guess CCC does similar) and appears to me that the only things it does not copy are the items related to your current boot session that are deleted when you shut down anyway.
Right as usual sir. CCC behaves the same way. This FAQ response gives a few reasons for the file sizes not matching.
