No - backspacing is defined as the distance from the back
(aka - inboard side) of the wheel to the nearest mounting surface. It has nothing to do with a measurement from the 'front side' of the wheel.
I've never head the term 'setback' before - so you can call it whatever you want too, it's not an industry standard I've ever heard of. lol
Again, this topic/question really should be created in the wheels & tires section. It has nothing to-do with torsion bar cranking.
Another few examples:
