That is correct.
It looks that the backport missed the change. The v4.4 has:

static inline void task_seccomp(struct seq_file *m, struct task_struct *p)         
{                                                                                  
#ifdef CONFIG_SECCOMP                                                              
        seq_printf(m, "Seccomp:\t%d\n", p->seccomp.mode);                          
#endif                                                                             
        seq_printf(m, "\nSpeculation_Store_Bypass:\t");      

Upstream has:

tatic inline void task_seccomp(struct seq_file *m, struct task_struct *p)         
{                                                                                  
        seq_put_decimal_ull(m, "NoNewPrivs:\t", task_no_new_privs(p));             
#ifdef CONFIG_SECCOMP                                                              
        seq_put_decimal_ull(m, "\nSeccomp:\t", p->seccomp.mode);                   
#endif                                                                             
        seq_printf(m, "\nSpeculation_Store_Bypass:\t");                         

The af884cd4a5ae6 is the one that removed the '\n' from the end and put it in the
front of 'Seccomp '.

Greg, I am not sure how one would fix this in a stable tree. But the fix is simple
(hadn't tested it..)

Subject: [PATCH] Fix: proc: Use underscores for SSBD in 'status'

Upstream af884cd4a5ae6 (not backported) added a '\n' in front
of 'Seccomp' but we have the old format with '\n' at the end.
This causes mayhem with 'Speculation_Store_Bypass' adding an extra
newline breaking tools.
