If the encryption keys become part of the backup, then what's the point

Which brings me to a conversation I just had with Moxy. They can't
backup encrypted files.

I'm missing something. If someone got hold of the backup, with the keys
and the encrypted files, what could they do without a passphrase? Seems
like the files would still be safe given a strong one.

You would be one layer short of protection, that being the passphrase
only which, if 16 characters, ought to be sufficient.
