That's the expected behavior - the "backup" role allows backup agents to run the PowerShell backup script from WFA's bin folder:
.\Backup.ps1 -User bu -Password bu -File c:\temp\wfa-backup.sql.gz
(unfortunately it seems this feature is broken in 2.0... - I've filed a ticket for this).

According to the WFA design, we can only create a backup user through WFA UI portal, its function is to only take backup directly from the WFA server as mentioned by Micheal.
This user cannot log into WFA using the user interface and can only perform the backup task.
