Page List and Latest Posts Text Colors Do Not Automatically Adjust to Background Color in 6.0

I am using the Twenty Twenty-Two theme in WordPress 6.0. I created a cover block with a black background, added a column block, then added the "Page List" block and "Latest Posts" block to the columns. The bullet points automatically changed to white, whereas all the links remained black - and thus could not be read/seen since they were the same color as the background. I am assuming this is because the "links" color in my "Styles" are black, but there is no option to adjust the link styling in the case where the background color is darker (i.e. a link color alternative). If I change the link color, it will affect all the links across my site - not just the links on a dark background.

A much-needed feature is either the ability to edit link colors from the Block Settings Sidebar, or to have a link color alternative for darker backgrounds available to set in the "Styles" section.

I'll add that I'm aware that such customizations can be made using CSS, but I think these features should be built-in to WordPress and should not require custom coding.

I'd like to add that the bullet colors only change automatically when you use the "Cover" block, but do not change automatically when you use the "Group" block with the same design configuration (i.e. four columns with the latest post and page list blocks in the two middle columns).
