I reported the problem here:

But I've been told that the problem was in the systemd timer shipped in
the certbot package and that I should report it here.

Let me know if you need something else in order to turn these messages

Not really a backport specific issue as it is just part of the debian certbot package.

What you're seeing is the cron job that is run to renew certs. This'll give you more insight:

cat /etc/cron.d/certbot

On my systems I replaced "0 */12 * * *" "@monthly", might be worth emails the maintainers/filing a bug about having this configurable via debconf.
