Hmm, not sure how to go about fixing this. I can confirm the behavior. We're not doing anything in the xterm packaging to make it white rather than black in Ubuntu. Maybe something elsewhere in the system is causing it to show up white but I can't tell what that would be. Afaik we don't have a preference in Ubuntu whether to have it black or white, and are going to just take whatever upstream and debian feel to be the best default.

Can anyone confirm that on current versions of debian it is colored correctly? If so, then if anyone can spot what in Ubuntu is causing it to be different, explain here and we can try to fix that.
