Is there any way that the target website can trace the origin of the IP back to us?

No. When a Bright Data customer sends a request through the Bright Data residential proxy network, that request is sent to a Bright Data “Super proxy”, which is a server that strips away identifying information(if any), and sends that request to one of the millions of residential IPs that opted in to the Bright Data network. The IP of the proxy on the Bright Data network is a Residential IP, belonging to a regular Internet user in a geography and ISP of the Bright Data customers' choice. The request to the target website originates from that IP, and is not traceable further back to the Super proxy, or further back than that to the Bright Data customer.
