We re-textured the ceiling aftar dry wall repair.

Applied one coat drywall primer and two top coats, all with airless. We have streaks. Should we have backrolled?

We do not have streaks on the wall. It was also primed and painted. Only the ceiling was textured. Seems like the streaking has to do with the perosity of the texture. Would backrolling help with that?

If the paint hasn’t completely dried and cured they may disappear? If it has cured yes back rolling in the opposite direction should help. If you’re using quality paint.

Edit: Paint over textures can take a while to absorb and cure if your in a humid climate. Days or more in some cases.

Is this a 'popcorn' ceiling?

It is a splatter texture with Behr drywall primer.

I think the tip was worn and gave an uneven application.

You may have your answer but give it a few days to dry like Master said. Ceiling paint is pretty forgiving.
