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.
