Yes, but for files outside of /home/user/ (like
/etc/apt/sources.list), you have to also modify osso-backup so that it
will actually overwrite that file on restore.

It does since version 4.27.  I am still not totally happy about
backing it up, since that file is to some extend specific to the OS
release you are running.  In the future, we might need to get smarter
about it.
