This could be related to 4a5de04ece (Fix background colour drawing in
wxGenericTreeCtrl under Mac, 2021-01-16) as this is the only relevant

There is no way to override the highlight colours, but they're supposed to
"work", i.e. provide enough contrast and normally should be the same as the
ones used by the native control. I don't know why this doesn't happen, it
would need to be debugged when I have time for it. In the meanwhile, please
open an issue for this and, of course, if you can debug it yourself, it
would be most welcome.
