Resolved "Genius Sync" Issue
This issue was driving me a bit crazy as well. Every time I connected my iPhone 4 "Step 6 of 6" caused "Sync Genius Data" for 599 songs. It didn't take a long time, but I don't use iTunes Genius (no Genius Playlists in iTunes either) and it was annoying.
I'm running OS X v10.8.2 "Mountain Lion" and iTunes v11.0.1 using iTunes Match.
Here's how I resolved it including an odd quirk:
First I ensured that Genius was NOT turned on on my iTunes account, the iTunes app on my iMac as well as my iPhone.
At this point no change - Step 6 of 6 the Genius sync started again.
However, I followed the exact same steps above once more. After the second time it stopped Genius syncing. I have no idea why doing this two times worked. It might have needed to update on iTunes Match and I just didn't give it enough time.
In any case, I've reconnected my iPhone several times since then and no more Genius syncs.
I don't know if this process will work for others, but hope it helps!
