Those items should be in your iTunes library. You can backup the library by:
If you restore from iTunes backup, those items will be restored to the iPod if they are in your iTunes library.
If you restore from iCloud backup your iTunes purchased media will also be restored.

So what you're saying is that it's simply not true what Apple is trying to warn us against? Because from your answer, I understand that iTunes does in fact backup everything includings apps and media.

The backup you are referring to is the backup of the iPod that iTunes makes. That is seperate than the iTunes library. I and Apple do not count what is in the library as a backup.
