I've installed WS2019 STD. Works fine, almost...
After added Windows Server Backup feature, backup still is unavailable like you can see in the attachment.
What happened? What I make incorrect?
Please help me.

Try removing the feature, reboot, then add the Windows Backup feature again and see if that helps.
I performed a vanilla installation of Windows Server 2019, and found that Windows Server Backup is already installed and functioning, even though it appears that the feature is not installed (see image).
Possibly a bug in the Windows build?

Thank you for your answer!
I tried this procedure before, but without success. I've check system settings and in a Windows Security center Backup settings is empty too (it is not possible edit settings):
My Windows 2019 I have from offical partner's site.
So, looks like a bug, but I wan to know experts opinion before I open support ticket.
What you think?
I've installed Hyper-V feature and installed the same ISO image as g auest machine - Windows Backup is available without added role... I'm a bit confused.
So, I have only way to resolve this issue: reinstall Windows Server 2019 STD. It's weak :/

You won't find Windows Server Backup in the Settings app, it is found in Windows Administrative Tools as a separate application.
Another thing to try, run PowerShell as administrator and type:
This should show if Server Backup is actually installed.
EDIT: ignore my PowerShell cmdlet- it shows as available in Windows 2019, but is still installed as per my previous post. Yes, obviously a bug.

Thank you for your engagement! You're right - Windows Server Backup feature already installed, but not usable :/
So, I installed Hyper-V role and installed WIndows Server 2019 as virtual machine (from the same image) and... Windows backup are available! (LOL).
Finally, I've reinstalled whole server - right now WIndows Backup are available in Server manager, but for perform backup I must add backup feature. Initial backup was performed, this night Windows will be updated as I planed.
Tomorrow let you know about effect.

I uninstalled the feature, rebooted the server. Reinstalled the backup and network load balancing feature and now the backup feature is on.
