Hi, when i change into dark mode and then change background color to black, navbar still stay grey. This issue exist from 3.0b14 to present version. 3.0b13 and previous is fine. I can reproduce this on two phones with android 7.0 and 8.0, it looks like on the screenshoot:

I have this issue on Moto X force and Z2 Force which is almost clean aosp. So is there any way to provide logs? I have checked logs in settings, but .TotalCommander/log.txt is still empty.

I can confirm it on Android 10 device, though not sure whether it's a bug or intentional behavior:
1. Switch to dark theme: TC window and Android Navigation bar (with Back/Home/Recent Apps buttons) both use default dark background color
defined in Settings->Font and Colors->Background: RGB: 303030.
2. Now set the background color there to black (RGB: 0):
Panels and own TC's bars of TC window will use RGB: 0, but Android Navigation bar will still use RGB: 303030.
And in this case, TC's title bar also still uses default RGB: 303030, so RGB:0 is applied only to panels and Total Commander bars.
Custom background color is also not applied to e.g. Settings window of TC, but there another issue with Android Navigation bar color exists: when TC4A uses dark theme, the color of Android Navigation bar is white while TC's Settings window is opened.

Indeed I'm not applying the user-chosen background color - I apply default dark in dark mode and default light in light mode. This is intentional.

This is intentional.
You didn't comment another issue I mentioned:

This looks like a bug.

In previous betas this has been fixed for almost all conditions except following:
1. Close TC with command 155 (killProcess) or reboot phone.
2. Tap on some media or text file in 3rd party app like some file manager, choose TC Media Player activity or TC Editor activity in app picker,
or launch TC Media Player/TC Editor activity directly from some activities launcher, like QuickShortcutMaker: Android Navigation Bar will be white in dark Player/Editor.
