Between the proxy and the repository, you can apply a preferred network:

We just open a TCP connection between the proxy and the repository. If you use preferred networks we are going to try to open the TCP connection between two preferred endpoints/IP's

However, how the data is send and what network adapters are used is mainly decided by the OS / Switch configuration. So if you want to use multiple network adapters, you need to trunk them at the OS layer / Switch layer, but this is not a Veeam configuration.
