Dom0 and Fedora. Would Fedora vulnerabiltiies impact dom0?

If there are 0day exploits for Fedora or Fedora backdoors that are not discovered then would this make dom0 less secure or would it not matter?

Short answer: yes, dom0 is based on Fedora, and generally speaking Fedora vulnerabilities affect dom0. (That’s why you don’t run software in dom0 if you can avoid it.)

Whether they are exploitable is a different question, since dom0 is permanently kept offline and data flows incoming dom0 are generally limited.
