Empty backup directory

After installing LyX, the backup directory is empty (Preferences > 
Paths). Does that mean that no backups are created by default or that 
the backups are created even though "Backup documents, every ... 
minutes" is checked (Preferences > Look & Feel > Document Handling) 
(btw. Look & Feel seems a misnomer for backup settings). Or is a backup 
created in the directory of the lyx file (the title bar shows a 
directory even for new not yet saved files, so I suppose these files are 
backup there as well)?
