Does an iTunes backup restore the software version?

So for example could you back up on iTunes, update to iOS 6.1.3, then roll back to 6.1.2 via the backup?

No, you cannot roll back that way - an update made on an older iOS version will only restore content, apps and settings etc, not the OS itself.

Some iDevices can be downgraded - even from iOS 6.1.3, but NOT the newer ones (iPhone 5 etc). Check =>
