Wash-out or “dull” colors on HDR10 Monitor [Continuation]

Following the previous conversation Wash-out or "dull" colors on HDR10 Monitor.

Steps to reproduce

In order to show the following example, I am using this plugin: GitHub - deathau/cm-editor-syntax-highlight-obsidian: A plugin for [Obsidian](https://obsidian.md) which allows syntax highlighting for code blocks in the editor.
to color some of the text.

Notice the difference on the text tags orange.

This is how the colors look on a wide gamut monitor: RGB (218, 157, 64)

And this is in a normal gamut monitor: RGB (228, 159, 51)

Images also are off to some degree.

Here is the original image:

The original color is: RGB (255, 0, 0)
Pasted on a normal gamut monitor, I get: RGB (232, 54, 19)
Pasted on a wide gamut monitor, I get: RGB (213, 40, 16)

Capture from the wide gamut monitor: RGB (213, 40, 16)

Expected result

The colors should be the same. For text and images.

Also tried without the plugin “Editor Syntax Highlight v0.1.3”.

The issue is fixed if I set:

C:\Users\xxx\AppData\Local\Obsidian\Obsidian.exe --force-color-profile=srgb

Is there any way to permanently fix this? Thanks!

This is an upstream problem and should be sorted out by chrome or electron.
