Is there any way to adjust the dark color tint for the default dark mode theme?

When MS introduces Mica and Windows 11 they added a more blue tint on the dark elements but the main window of file explorer for example is a neutral dark grey.

Problem is dark grey often "look" to have a more brown tint in a proper sRGB color gamut.

I would like to adjust the color to for something like RGB 18,23,27

    Using W11 OS on customers' computers more and more often, and sometimes on my mum's new laptop.
Well I went the old UXThemePatcher (UltraUXThemePatcher_4.3.4) route and edited aeroglass.msstyles with msstyleEditor. Ended up looking pretty nice. Link below
