For what it's worth I find the lack of contrast here a problem too.
Though I can read the text, it's not especially pleasant.  I've also
found something similar in my exports (with a non default colour
theme), which has led me to use the following STYLE option for source
code blocks etc...

#+STYLE:    <style> pre { background-color: #191919 } pre { color:
#FFFFFF } </style>

Having a darker background colour for source code and example blocks
seems like the sensible thing to do.
