Because you need a comprehensive backup for that. When you restore and certain apps are still missing that were part of settings, well you'll get errors. You can try restoring apps then restoring those settings separately, but thats the only other option you got. Also the settings are part of the Launcher's data which is inaccessible without root, since its considered app data. Some launchers do have a setup backup option.
