Hello, those menu items should be using whatever Style your app is currently using for menu items. I don't believe we set a particular theme for those menu controls, which means they inherit whatever Menu and MenuItem styles are active, which normally would be the WPF defaults.

Are you using our Themes features to set a theme for your app? And if you do, do you have native control themes set active? If so then you can alter the brush used for highlights.  Our Themes documentation and QuickStarts show how to override theme brush assets in app Reources.  The one related to hover background highlights is themes:AssetResourceKeys.MenuItemBackgroundHighlightedBrushKey.
