The configuration file looks right to me. If rsync is still trying to
use group "admins", then either there's a really weird bug in rsync or
it is using a different configuration file than you think. If you
previously ran an rsync daemon with a different configuration file, be
sure to kill that process before starting another rsync daemon. Then,
to see what configuration file the daemon is opening, you could strace
it:

strace -f -o daemon.strace rsync --daemon

But maybe you just want to use the rsync over ssh.
