Backlinks within a highlighted block are unreadable in preview mode

Steps to reproduce

I’m using the default obsidian appearance with no custom CSS.
Create a backlink.
Wrap the backlink in a highlight block.

Expected result

In Edit mode, backlinks become white.
I expect preview mode to do this or something similar. The text should be readable and high contrast

Actual result

The backlink retains it’s normal purple link styling. However this becomes unreadable and very low contrast when highlighted.
