I went through this in the previous review, but for the opposite
condition where backup == NULL (repeated for ease)

Without the stealing of objdef, when return from the Add function we
have "refcnt=2" and "lock=true".

For some reason we jump to restore_backup and call ObjListRemove which
returns and the object refcnt=1 and lock=false.

We fall into cleanup:

Call virSecretDefFree(def) where @def != NULL, so it free's it
Call virSecretObjEndAPI(&obj) which calls Unref, setting R=0 and calling
virSecretDefFree(obj->def)... But wait, we already did that because we
allowed the DefFree(def) to free something it didn't own.

The other fix to the leak you point out is:

    if (backup) {
        virSecretObjSetDef(obj, backup);
        def = objdef;
    } else {
        virSecretObjListRemove(driver->secrets, obj);

Unless you want the other condition of having two free's of @def
