Actually it's much worse than that. It's not only rust per se.

My poudriere machine rarely can do a build run without rebuilding one or 
more of rust, some version of clang, some version of gcc, 
qt[56]-webengine, py-qt6 (this one does most of the work single threaded 
unluckily). Also it often ends up having to rebuild firefox and 
thinderbird (these two heavily use rust, and get little speed up from 
ccache), libreoffice (this one at least get a very strong speed up 
thanks to ccache) etc.

I do not approve of this, but the world is going in that direction, 
especially for desktop oriented software but not only.

My conclusion is, I have no power to stop this, so I can only adapt, 
with effort, but still less effort than resisting alone for no benefit.
