I'm not sure that Tramp is involved. Tramp passes all commands to
ange-ftp in case of an FTP method; and it doesn't touch ange-ftp
variables in general.

You can test it replacing Tramp by ange-ftp directly after Emacs
start, evaluating the following code:

(setq file-name-handler-alist
      '(("^/[^/:]*\\'" . ange-ftp-completion-hook-function)
        ("^/[^/:]*[^/:.]:" . ange-ftp-hook-function)
        ("\\`/:" . file-name-non-special)))

If the same effect happens, it is rather an ange-ftp problem.

Furthermore, you can disable backup for ange-ftp (and more general,
for Tramp) with the following code:

(add-to-list 'backup-directory-alist
             (cons tramp-file-name-regexp nil))

This is described in the Tramp manual.
