Did you copy under root? BSD cpio unlike GNU cpio does preserve file flags.

  $ cpio --version
  bsdcpio 2.8.4 -- libarchive 2.8.4

  $ find /lib | sudo cpio -dmp test
  56525 blocks

  $ ls -lo test/lib | awk '$5 != "-"'
  total 15595

  -r--r--r--  1 root  wheel  schg  131655 Sep  5 22:24 libcrypt.so.5
