After looking into this, and getting more information from subject matter experts and Backline, it looks like NetBackup is not affected.  If your doing a backup with a standard SQL policy, NetBackup it is going to make an ODBC call to SQL to have it put the database in a sudo backup mode and create a database lock. 

Also partitioning is more for indexes and NetBackup doesn't back up the indexes as part of the backup.
