I touched on that in the first thread. As of today probes only exist
for VBE backends.

There is no probing mechanism for FOO backends/director, unless we
abstract the probes to make them usable with arbitrary
implementations. But I don't reckon the current behavior would be a
one-size-fits-all for other types of backends.
