I guess I got an std kernel driver :)

Partially reproduce,
<tab><backspace>       is ok, i.e jump fwd 8 and backward 8
X<tab>X<backspace>  is ok got X jump fwd 7 X backward 7
X<tab><backspace>    wrong got X jump fwd 7 backward 4 (yet ok in the buffer)

Gnome-terminal has its own backspace key mapping (so no xresource, yet
mapped ok), terminator unfortunatly don't have it :)

xterm use xresources, that what I use i.e

xmodmap backspace give 0x8
xresources VT100 Backsapce 0x08
stty erase ^H

With that I am almost an happy camper :)
