According to https://www.mythtv.org/wiki/Setup_General#Backend_Control, ubuntu supplies scripts to start and stop the backend, ignoring the setting in mythtv-setup. Where are those scripts? On my 15.04 system, they are still attempting to use upstart to do this, which of course doesn't work as 15.04 uses systemd.

It turns out the web page is wrong. What was throwing me off was that you can't use sudo (as suggested on the mythtv-setup page), that hangs the shutdown (I assume it's asking for the password on the terminal), you need to use kdesudo.
