Guys, I have a general question to Trezor. Is the Backup-Seed the 24 words saved on the blockchain? Would it be wrong to say it? Thx

No it is not and it is also advised that you also shouldn't save those recovery seeds anywhere online.
For more info regarding recovery seed visit

If you are worried about getting your recovery seed stolen/leaked than you can use your own paraphrase to encrypt those recovery seeds https://doc.satoshilabs.com/trezor-user/advanced_settings.html#using-passphrase-encrypted-seeds

Ok, but I would like to understand better how seed can be confirmed to be right? The Seed must be saved anywhere or not?

I don't own a trezor, but i do own a ledger... In a ledger, the seed isn't stored anywhere, and i can only assume the same goes for a trezor. It wouldn't be OK securitywise to save the seed anyways...

If you want to confirm if the seed is correct, you can alway initialize your trezor, write down the first generated address, wipe your trezor, re-initialise it from seed, check if the first generated address is the same as the initial first generated address... If the addresses match, you have successfully written down the seed.
