You are understanding correctly.
The rid is useful and unique only internally the node.
No other nodes know the rid being used by other nodes.

Am I understanding your correctly?
If I have a single provider (master) and 20 replicas (slaves) I can set
the rid to 42 on all the replicas and they will maintain sync?
There is no need to keep the rid unique on each replica using the same

No, the whole point of the design is that the provider does not need to
know anything about the replicas. Also, RID is entirely internal to the
replica. I.e., the only requirement is that if a replica has multiple RIDs
in its configuration, they are all unique inside that singular replica.
I.e., if you have 500 replicas, they can all use the same RIDs as one
another, as long as they remain unique inside the given replicas.
