In expand-file-name, Tramp needs to open a remote connection only in
case the local file name is not absolute, and it must expand the home
directory to an absolute file name.

So the file names in ~/.recentf shall be saved with an absolute local
file name. Then you could add file-remote-p to recentf-keep, as it is
proposed in the doc-string of recentf-keep.

Best regards, Michael.
