CephFs: which network for backups

Hey all. Hopefully a simple question. Which network is used for backups when backing up to CephFs (as configured from Proxmoc GUI)? I'd assume it's the public network, right?

I'm using 25Gb fiber nics for my cluster network. Would it be possible to easily set backups to use the cluster network (hopefully without editing /etc/pve/ceph.conf)?
