App backup/restore seems flawed

Can it really be right that app backups can only be restored to a live site? No option to restore to staging? No option to download and test locally?

I see that you can create an on demand backup and download it immediately. But it doesn’t seem possible to download a backup from the restore points that Cloudways offer.

This seems like a serious flaw/limitation. Who wants to restore an untested backup to a live site? Have I misunderstood something?
