I suggest to submit a bug report using "M-x report-emacs-bug".  I
clearly see on my machine a backup file for abbrev_defs, but upon
reviewing the code in abbrevs.el I don't think that backup file was
created by Emacs.  So this sounds like a missing feature.

Meanwhile, you could work around by editing the abbrev_defs file
directly, as opposed to saving it with C-c C-c.
