Q: Is there security support for packages from backports.debian.org?
A: Unfortunately not. This is done on a best effort basis by the people
who track the package
This looks like a language confusion. There is no security *team* support but there is security *package updates* by the individual maintainers.
The individual contribution sounds optional here in the FAQ but from my experience with backports it's strongly encouraged.
