It actually isn't necessary, but it would still be needed to investigate why dircolors(1) may behave the way I described it above, because it may

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?

I haven't researched it further, but Arch Linux applies no patches to the coreutils package, which you can see on the link below. I don't know what Ubuntu does.
