If you log in to www.icloud.com from a computer and go to the Contacts app there, those contacts are not related to iCloud Backup. They are synced from a device based on the following settings (and they should sync after any change to a contact whether or not you have Settings > [username] > iCloud > Backup turned on) :

On an iOS device: Settings > [username] > iCloud > Contacts

On a Mac: Apple menu > System Preferences > iCloud > Contacts


If you have that setting turned on and they are not syncing, see the following: Get help using iCloud Contacts, Calendars, or Reminders - Apple Support
