"backorder" as availabiilty

Upon reviewing listings uploaded to Google Shopping for a client, we notice that "Availability" is recorded as "backorder" though we indicate in our feeds that "Availability" is "available for order". Why is this? Thank you in advance

google may sometimes change a google-defined
value to something else, once submitted -- typically,
the value reflects the information and may be used
in other contexts.

generally, always submit the exact value as defined
by google within their current specifications --
