I'm trying to understand the behavior of "always keep on this device". 

 

If I have a PC with the OneDrive Sync client installed and some files marked as "always keep on this device".  Then I replace this PC with a new one and configure the sync client with the same account, will those files marked as "always keep on this device" automatically sync down to the new PC or will I have to re-select the files to keep on device?

Nope, you have to re-apply the selection, it per-device.
