Hi, Good question

As per the documentation links provided in the question

  • rds-in-backup-plan seems to be for the RDS database, so in other words DB backup
  • rds-resources-protected-by-backup-plan is for the instances where the RDS is hosted, so in other words OS backup.

The difference seems to be in the Parameters of rds-resources-protected-by-backup-plan
