It's ext3 (In the original post I included the make file system command):
# mkfs.ext3 -L /backup /dev/hdc1
If I do an ls -ld /backup before mounting and after mounting, the
permissions look the same to me, obviously I'm missing something but I can't

Ok well you're not sharing some of that information so I can only
speculate but is /dev/hdc1 ... is that ext2/ext3 ?
