Have you tried building coreutils from source?  (I have not.)

On Ubuntu 22.04, `dircolors` generates an LS_COLORS that has ca=30;41.

I looked at the `dircolors` binary with `less`, and I could see that
the string embedded in `dircolors` is different from the
`dircolors.hin` file.

Perhaps Debian or Canonical (or Arch?) are patching `dircolors` to
enable the coloring of capabilities by default?
