The backing plate is just a fairly thin piece of sheet metal that covers up the back of the rotor. Its not very thick or heavy duty so it wouldn't take a lot to bend it in to the point it hits the rotor. I'm not sure how a person would even bend on by accident unless you were off roading. In other words, the shop did it.

I don't know what the big deal is, I'd just take a pair of pliers and bend it out where its not hitting. I'm not saying you should do it, but its such an easy fix I don't know why the shop just didn't bend it back, say thanks and send you on your way. In other words, the guy is being a jerk and just swearing up and down he didn't do it. It would be quicker for him not to argue the point and crawl under there and fix it.
