Does github uses encryption at rest for all the repositories?

Wanted to know whether the repositories is encrypted at rest or not? 

The privacy page https://help.github.com/en/articles/github-privacy-statement says "Transmission of data on GitHub is encrypted using SSH, HTTPS, and SSL/TLS. While our data is not encrypted at rest,..."

 

The following blog https://github.blog/changelog/2019-05-23-git-data-encryption-at-rest/ says otherwise. Incidentally both pages are updated on the same date.

Thanks for being here Source code stored on GitHub.com is encrypted at rest. There is a little more information in the following changelog entry:

Are backups of the repositories also encrypted?

Is the repository data that is backed up decrypted at any point along the way to being backed up?

In other words, is the path from repository to backup end-to-end encrypted?

Is there any more information apart from that in github security guidelines that we can see?
