If you set the background color to another color it will show the selected color for the background.  If you set it to Transparent, it shows black instead of whatever color/image etc is behind the SearchBar.  In the sample app, backgorund color is set to red.  SearchBar has a black background, label shows the correct Red.

Tested on iOS and Android, iOS has the issue, Android correctly shows the BackGround color of the layout the searchbar is part of.  On a Mac right now so I can't test the WP version.
