This variable, t by default, acts when `electric-pair-mode' is enabled.

It doesn't work in c-mode, python-mode and maybe other modes in
emacs. In also doesn't work in other modes outside of emacs, such as
markdown-mode.el [1]

All these modes rebind the backspace key to a command that does some
mode-specific action, then calls `backward-delete-char-untabify'.

elec-pair.el does mostly the same through remapping in its
`electric-pair-mode-map' but this binding is overriden by the

elec-pair.el remaps two other commands similarly. Here's the value of

     (remap keymap
            (delete-backward-char . electric-pair-backward-delete-char)
            (backward-delete-char . electric-pair-backward-delete-char)
               . electric-pair-backward-delete-char-untabify)))

Perhaps a hook in `backward-delete-char' is in order. Or the other major
modes can find other ways to overload the backspace key.
