Created attachment 52664 [details]
Shot of a Draw document on Okular.

When exporting a document to PDF it grabs the UI theme of the Application layer. So doing a high level theming of the Desktop Environment. LibreOffice will adjust itself to the Theme all the way to the document. 

The issue comes when the PDF export will generate a PDF with the theming. This works bad when your document is a traditional white color paper generate a dark background with light gray document in PDF.

I can't reproduce, but I don't get a dark background in Draw with a dark theme (Ambiance-Blackout).
