You are right. ZFS here acts only as an LVM to create those devices. But zfs-mount reads the content of /etc/fstab and if find's any device within /dev/zvol/ it does for it a simple mount command.

The zfs-mount contains this script to mount:

read_fstab() {
        for fs in "${!FSTAB[@]}" ; do unset FSTAB["$fs"] ; done
        while read -r fs mntpnt fstype opts blah ; do
                fs=`printf '%b\n' "$fs"`
        done < <(grep -E "$1" /etc/fstab)
    if [ -n "$POOL_IMPORTED" ]; then
        [ "$VERBOSE_MOUNT" == 'yes' ] && verbose=v
        [ "$DO_OVERLAY_MOUNTS" == 'yes' ] && overlay=O

        $log_begin_msg "Mounting ZFS filesystems not yet mounted"
        $ZFS mount -a$verbose$overlay $MOUNT_EXTRA_OPTIONS

        if [ $RET != 0 ] ; then
            $log_end_msg $RET
            exit $RET
        $log_end_msg 0

        read_mtab  "^/dev/(zd|zvol)"
        read_fstab "^/dev/(zd|zvol)"

        $log_begin_msg "Mounting volumes registered in fstab: "
        for volume in "${!FSTAB[@]}" ; do
            if in_mtab "$volume" ; then continue ; fi

            $log_progress_msg "$volume "
            mount "$volume"

        $log_end_msg 0
    checksystem && {
        case "$ZFS_MOUNT" in
                exit 3

        touch "$LOCKDIR/$servicename"

As it can be seen, mount of devices are done in the order which they are described in /etc/fstab. Maybe the next mount command is started before previous mount command finished and fully mounted /backup?
