Yes, I confirm: this is a problem.
A quick and dirty fix is to download and install netbase package
form bullseye distribution and then reinstall iptables. Seems to
work for me but is not a real solution of course.

On 25 August a new release of iptables was pushed to
buster-backports which depends on netbase >= 6.0 - however
netbase is not available in backports, and the version in
buster is currently 5.6:
The following packages have unmet
iptables : Depends: netbase (>=
6.0) but 5.6 is to be installed
This results in an impossible situation when installing
iptables from backports, and as a knock on effect via a common
dependency (libxtables12) also breaks nftables amongst other
Any chance this can be fixed, by correcting backported
iptables to depend on netbase 5.6?
