In practice it has the same guarantee as pkg_tarup - but as joerg mentioned in 
another post, pkg_tarup is not guaranteed to work in the first place 
(pkgmanager uses 'make replace', which uses pkg_tarup).

When I was first considering implementing explicit package backups, I realized 
pkg_tarup already did it. So for now I have not done anything more about it.
