    As shown in the pic, this is all that was supplied when purchased, no backnut or anything.
    How do you fix it to the wall, brick or stud wall?

    Backplate to clamp it against the wall? The part with the thread is too short to accommodate female iron + backplate + wall thickness...
    How would it work with a brick wall though?

    You would have to gauge the finished wall thickness and pack off the backplate to match eg set it the right depth for the threads to seat

    I think it's the other way round, unless I don't understand: thread part is say 20mm long. Female iron + backplate take up 15mm (for e.g.), leaving 5mm for the wall. But the wall is 20mm thick, so the bracket is simply too short?

    If that's the case then you're in a spot of bother.
    The only way out is to install a 1/2" x 20mm m&f extension.

    I happen to have a radiator valve extension with me. Could I use that as extension? That bracket was just poorly designed in the first place I think.

    Yes you can or pack the backplate off the wall with a piece of wood 15mm thick
