Markdown links and links to header don't show as backlinks

Hi.
So on my Mac, I wanted to link to another note and also to a header in that same note, but wanted to keep my text (and not the note/ header title). So I just copied “link to note” and “link to header” from relevant contextual menus. Using the link button I wrote my text and copied the links. This all worked well.
However the problem is that, this way, the linked note failed to show any backlinks to it in the info section.
When I linked via the usual wikilink (double square brackets), it showed the backlink.

Is this normal behaviour and backlinks are only shown if linked via wiki link, and not directly copying the link to the note or header? If yes, then links to headers will never show as backlinks I guess?
