I'd expect it "not to work" in any major-mode.
backward-up-list as well as forward-sexp, backward-sexp, ... all
assume that the starting position is outside of any string and/or comment.
It's non-trivial to fix and sometimes people rely on the current behavior
so even if a technical solution comes around, it might be difficult
to use it because of the incompatible change in behavior.
PS: It "works" in text-mode simply because point cannot be in a string
since there are no strings (or comments for that matter) in text-mode.
