FP3+ Lineage 17.1 removes TWRP? Which Partitions to backup?

Since a few days I’m using Lineage 17.1 happily.
I just installed my first update flawlessly.

Now I wanted to reboot to recovery which is TWRP.
But the Lineage Bootloader started instead. After choosing “Reboot to revovery” or something similar my FP3+ started the Lineage Bootloader/Recovery again.

Does Lineage remove TWRP?

I want to keep TWRP to be able to restore backups.
Do I have to install TWRP again after each Lineage-Update?
Will this cause problems?

And another question:
The List of partitions of my FP3+ looks different to the partitions that I know from the FP2.
Which partitions do I have to backup in order to be safe?

It is not recommended to install TWRP on your FP. You should boot into TWRP from your PC via ADB.

Ok, thanks for that Information!

So backups can still be handled with TWRP although it was much more handy and comfortable having the possibility to directly boot to TWRP without a computer. But adb is alright to me.

But: which partitions and caches do I have to backup to be secure?

For me this is important to know because when I failed to root my lineage 10.1 with Magisk last week a restore of all partitions and Caches was impossible. Although I had ticked everything that was visible in TWRP backup.

Can anybody tell me what has to be in the backup?
