When removing SYNC from make.conf emerge --sync works fine.

OK, I found the override code in portage/repository/config.py. 
It was a backward compatibility variable for older mirrorselect.
Newer mirrorselect modifies repos.conf instead.

fixed in commit: https://github.com/gentoo/portage/commit/d88cf4746c0fe891087a79d630e9d8181c7cbd04
