The Background Count mechanic is not used in 6e.  See the Appendix in Street Wyrd for the 6e take on the phenomenon, Mana Ebbs and Mana Flows.
RPG mechanics exist to give structure and consistency to the game world, true, but at the end of the day, you’re fighting dragons with algebra and random number generators.

The term Background Count was still used in several places however, and my guess is they will continue to do so.  Just know that they're synonyms.
