On pc Debian x86-64 with master sources updated today, I don't reproduce this (see attached file).

Could you give a try with LO 7.6.4 or brand new 24.2 version?

Attached screenshot shows dialogue with a red arrow pointing to the relevant option. 

1a.  Select a background color for a new hatching.
1b. Use "Modify" and add a background color to an existing hatching.

2.  Make a new shape and apply the saved/modified hatching.

Actual:  The background color is not included/saved.

Thank you for the feedback, I could reproduce this.
I had missed the fact you had added a new hatch item.

The shape has the right hatch, area dialog has the right background color but  "Background color" isn't checked so the preview doesn't show the background color.
