I read it that way, too.

I would definitely like to help, but I'm currently swamped until the end
of next week, unfortunately.
It would be great to have a version of cuDNN in buster so a standard
installation will work with it.
However, I anticipate that, like the Nvidia driver and CUDA, this will
be backported regularly. Support for the RTX 3000 cards only very
recently in CUDA and cuDNN, and there still appear to be some issues.
So users of these cards (which, until bullseye+1, will probably be quite
a few) will all but certainly have to rely on backports.
