Can't choose mesh mode for backbone node

Currently if I switch node to "Backbone" it is only possible to choose AP or sta but not mesh.

Is this a bug or a feature?

Should we migrate all backbone nodes from "mesh" to "AP/sta"? Is there any benefit? Better transfers?

The issue you are mentioning applies to wlan slovenija specific configuration defaults from nodewatcher.extra.wlansi.

In wlan slovenija backbone nodes are those with dedicated point-to-point links. These are different from normal mesh nodes, which are of type wireless. This is why defaults also reflect this design decision in only letting you select AP/STA combinations for backbone nodes.
