I don't know.  We have two options for tty: highlight indicators only
or use red/green foreground without syntax highlighting.

By default it used the black foreground.  Only Magit uses red/green foreground.

Maybe with conditional face definitions like

(if (boundp 'diff-font-lock-syntax)
    (defface blabla))
