Wp Dashboard => Users => Profile:

Admin color scheme: [Default](
Dashboard Home Page (/wp-admin/index.php):
Dashboard About Page (/wp-admin/about.php):

Admin color scheme: [Light](
Dashboard Home Page (/wp-admin/index.php):
Dashboard About Page (/wp-admin/about.php):

We see Dashboard Home page banner color is updated as per Admin color scheme.
But dashboard about page banner color is not updated

Looks like the Dashboard's Welcome panel sets its background to $dashboard-accent-1, and embeds the SVG directly in the page, styling fill with $dashboard-accent-1 and stroke with $dashboard-accent-2. See here.

The solution should be careful to maintain the same width, height and positioning of each SVG on the About, Credit, Freedoms and Privacy pages.

It is intentional that the dashboard updates with the color scheme, but the About page does not.

The dashboard widget should blend in more with your admin experience. The About pages, on the other hand, are meant to be more of a standalone design, the header consistent with the other graphics on those pages.

For example, the images on Freedoms & Privacy match the header, and the avatar color on Credits matches the header. This is mainly to keep those images & styles simple, vs trying to create new variations for each scheme.
