Your Azure backup is one hour in advance due to the fact that your backup does not take daylight savings time (DST) into account whereas your backup source does take DST into account from DST patch.

Azure Backup doesn't automatically take DST into account. This could cause some discrepancy between the actual time and scheduled backup time.

From 7 April 2019 onwards, Syndey's time set back an hour, so the time of your backup source is one hour behind the time of your Azure backup.

There is no fix so far.

for systemstate, its scheduled at sunday 10am, but again it starts at different time.

For systemstate backup, the time you seen is the time of completion of backup. Systemsatte backup takes much longer time than files backup as systemstate backup is a full backup whereas files backup is an incremental backup. So, it is normal to see different completion time of each scheduled tasks for systemstate backup.
