Yes, I think it's a different issue.

I don't think there's anything special about wrap-prefix
implementation: it just acts as if a display string was specified at
the proper buffer location.

I think the problem here is entirely different: both the
whitespace-space face used for the space characters and the
whitespace-line face used for the wrapped line specify background
colors.  When we merge these faces, the background of one of them must
win.  You can see that if you avoid specifying the background color
for the whitespace-line face, the whitespace in the wrap-prefix has
the expected face.

So I don't think there's a problem here.  Emacs behaves as expected.
