BO or FO, you all are still employees of a company. Still working for people.

Taking a BO job = accumulating BO experience, which makes you naturally better suited for BO roles. It's not about getting stuck, it's about the experience you are accumulating. If anything, having BO experience on your CV is worse than having no banking experience on your CV.
Point taken, which sounds very likely for people trying to move from BO to FO roles. However for a role in say, credit risk, what kind of experience would be beneficial? Or would you just have to get a job in that area from graduation? Would a fresh grad be better than someone with some experience (albeit in a BO role)?

I would think that someone with some experience would be better positioned given that you have a better understanding of the ins and outs of the BO functions, and that you would have build a rapport with your colleagues from other departments, which makes an internal transfer easier since people are already able to vouch for your performance (i.e. lower hiring risk compared to an external hire or a fresh grad).

While true, it's not a relevant not helpful response to the thread.
