This query is not urgent, but I would like to know.

Does evolution-backup-tar.gz contain the contents of my mail, contacts,
tasks etc. or just the settings?

Yes, it saves the mail (the local mail that is).

Help manual says, "The back up saves your Evolution gconf settings,
mails, contacts, tasks, memos and calendars and creates an archive."
which can be interpreted a bit ambiguously.

I don't see the ambiguity.

I have had advice that indicates that just the settings are saved,
however when I restored the other day I got most but not all of my
content data back.  e.g. missing one contact list/addresses and about 10

It's trivial to test. Create a backup and do:

        tar tvf backup.tar.gz

to get a list of what's there.
