Well, rebuild forces a journal sync, but if you look in the SA code, it
appears to check if expiry is needed, and if needed it runs that at the
same time.

So while it does not force expiry, it does provide a point when expiry can run.

I'd still do the force-expire cronjob, but I ran for several weeks without
it and my expires seemed to run OK, with my expiry atime changing every few
days when my bayes got large enough to warrant another expire.

I'm an AWL non-fan.
