It is not a SSH error because to get the first error (the sieve related
one) "doveadm" already connected to the remote backup server via SSH.

I have installed & configured sieve in the backup server, with an empty
filter set. I can now do the backup correctly.

Interestingly if I disable the sieve plugin in the backup server, the
backup keeps working. WTF!

My guess is that sieve has set the
"vendor/vendor.dovecot/pvt/server/sieve/default" attribute in the
mailbox and the backup process is happy now, even if I disable sieve
after the fact.

I consider this issue closed but it would be nice to be documented
somewhere. Thanks.
