So the DDC bus is connected to a backlight and also a panel? This
binding is not reflecting the h/w, but rather what you want for some
driver.

There's only one thing here and that's an eDP panel which supports
backlight control via DP aux channel. You can figure all that out from
the panel's compatible and/or reading the EDID.
