I did some more testing.

I cannot set the 24-bit colors working on xterm directly.

But I sort of got it working in xterm via tmux configured for 24-bit colors[1] after setting TERM to "xterm-24bits" (but it didn't work at all when setting to "xterm-24bit" -- bit vs bits).

It's "sort of" because emacsclient -nw starts off with 24-bit colors, but then after scrolling, I see color artifacts. This gifv shows that:

Mine shows clear distinction on 'floralwhite' and 'oldlace' colors;  in
your picture they looks pretty the same.

I assume you already have done a full bootstrap just in case.

I did not do a full bootstrap. But it still seems to work in uxterm in tmux configured for 24-bits.
But it doesn't work directly in an xterm terminal.

What debug information can I provide from the direct xterm session or xterm+tmux session?
