Escape Char with Powershell ISE

I am attempting to use the `b or `r sequence as per https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/powershell/module/microsoft.powershell.core/about/about_special_characters?view=powershell-6
if I use the example in that page and issue the command write-host “backup`b`b out” in Powershell (non ISE) you get “back out” as the output as per the example however if you do this in ISE you get “backup out” instead.
It would appear that ISE cannot handle these two special characters. From what I can tell all the others such as `t and `n work fine.
This is verified by DoctorDNS in the following issue post
PowerShell/PowerShell-Docs#3151
Thanks
Robert
