So it would be better for me too to leave out the "+" character. It would take care of the function I lost when removing the "~" character. Is that correct?

Not recognizing the "+" is just a pecularity of the OBS. What is more important the the Debian versioning system ranks the tilde "~" symbol as lower than any other, so that guarantees that a backports version will be seen as lower than the equivalent version in the next stable release. Since you aren't concerned about that, (like we aren't at MX, either) you can go on with your homebuilt version, it should work just fine.

So the versioning system sees foo-1.2-3 > foo-1.2-3~bpo9+1 > foo-1.2-2
The MX Linux repositories: Backports galore! If we don't have something, just ask and we'll try--we like challenges. New packages: Krita 3.3.2.1, Pale Moon 27.6.0, Audacity 2.2.0, mpv 0.27.0, Corebird 1.7.1, Firefox 57.0, SMPlayer 17.11.2
