AFAICU, when we register a background worker using
RegisterDynamicBackgroundWorker, it's not included in
BackgroundWorkerList(which is postmaster's list of registered
background workers, in private memory). Instead, we use only
BackgroundWorkerSlots. Perhaps, this is the reason that backend_type
is NULL for parallel workers.
