I read the veeam docs and i don’t see any references to MSSQL on Linux.
Am I the only one to have this gift on production on VM? Except VM backup, it will be old fashioned way for DBA to play with backup on it.

Oh .. they do really exist. I never encountered one at my customers so far, and yes, you won’t find native support for it in Veeam.
You could still go and use pre- and post-scripting, e.g. to create a DB snapshot and flush everything to disk before taking the VM snapshot. You could also truncate logs in the post-script after taking the backup.
It is not that sexy as with native Veeam integration of course, but depending on your use cases it might be better than dumping SQL baks.
