that's the point of the backup... just wipe things before installing the backup.

To better answer your question: restoring from a backup restores EVERYTHING to that EXACT state your phone was when you initially did your backup.

So it's not bad, and actually very good . I have 5 different ROM backups on my sd card.

Rom Factory
You can also use Rom Factory and create your own rom. This will not create a total backup of your phone, just the required folders for the operating system.
