Scheduled Async Tasks Queues

There are multiple queues to choose from when setting up background preceses initiated by custom app hooks. The queues being: background, long, default, short (even though this comment does not mention it)

My problem is with background queue. It doesn’t seem to be executed at all. Running bench doctor shows same constant number of jobs scheduled for background queue days after jobs added to the queue. It’s not however the case with other queues (long, short, default).

As I understand it different queues are mostly for defining timeout between task execution, short being the most frequent and background the least frequent.

So is background scheduler queue usable at all? Is there something to be configured for it to run?
