According to the help page there is none.

These are the only configuration options regarding backup I found

|'backup'|	   |'bk'|	keep backup file after overwriting a file
|'backupdir'|	   |'bdir'|	list of directories for the backup file
|'backupext'|	   |'bex'|	extension used for the backup file
|'writebackup'|    |'wb'|	make a backup before overwriting a file


Whenever a system becomes completely defined, some damn fool discovers
something which either abolishes the system or expands it beyond recognition.
