Automatic dark mode picks wrong logo unless correct colour palette is selected manually

The title pretty much says it all: I have one theme (Default) with WCAG Light as default colour palette. I enabled automatic dark mode switching with “default dark mode color scheme id” set to WCAG Dark.
On my computer I have Dark Mode enabled and when I open any browser, without logging in, I see the WCAG Dark colours but the logo is the light, normal one. If I login, then go to in my settings → “Interface” and then manually select WCAG Dark and refresh, the correct logo appears.

I can’t figure out what’s wrong. I did set two different types of logos in the Branding section.

I can manually set my colour palette correctly, but unlogged users with dark mode enabled see a black background but with a light logo. How can I fix this?

I’m not sure if that’s the problem I’m having. The colour palette is right and it does change, but the logo doesn’t. It’s like the automatic dark mode doesn’t also switch the logo for some reason.
