Backdating ESA and relevant NI years

If somebody claims ESA in the first week of 2021 the relevant NI years are 2018-19 and 2019-20.

If they seek to backdate the claim start date to the first week of October does this also shift the NI years back to 2017-18 and 2018-19 or do the relevant years remain 2018-19 and 2019-20 based on the date the claim is being made?
