OK so I created a few different folders like livetv addons folder kids add-on folder and a few others
So if I do a back up it will keep those folders with the addons I put in them in my super folder

Well I have 2 m8s boxes I just did a backup then used the image on my 2nd m8s and it did not keep my addons in the folders I made but it did keep the folders but not the addons within the folders is there something other than just doing a backup and restore that I missed

Shouldn't be.
If you really want to be sure though - after you've made your backup just make a copy of the whole kodi data folder.

I don't have your box, but I imagine your data folder is in internal storage, something like Android/data/org.xbmc.kodi/files/kodi
That'll be a hidden folder.
Open up your android file manager of choice, enable 'view hidden stuff', navigate to the folder, copy. I'd just copy the whole org.kodi.xbmc folder.
Paste it to somewhere that won't be lost in your re-set - usb stick?
After re-set install kodi, paste folder back into Android/data, start kodi.

Just to confirm Super Favourites simply stores a bunch of files and folders in userdata/addon_data/plugin.program.super.favourites (by default).

So assuming you haven't changed that location and assuming your backup copies that location then it should be okay.

Obviously your backup program also needs to backup the addons folder so that when you restore the backup, the addons are also restored.

SF by default does not show items that reference addons that are no longer installed (this behaviour is configurable), which is what it sounds like has happened.
