Yes, the official Bitwarden back-end self-hosted or in their cloud is 
MS-SQL + .net core on Linux.

The server code and the front end apps/webUI are all FOSS.  The database 
engine and compiler for the official engine is not.

It all depends on where you draw the pragmatic vs 'it must be FOSS' 
line.  I tend to fall well at the pragmatic end of that scale. ;-)

And yes, MS-SQL is not opensource, but your un-encrypted user data never 
touches that layers so who cares?
