I think the screenshots show in what way this can improve visibility
and reduce clutter. The first screenshot is the current appearance,

Not sure what you mean regarding reducing color saturation, I don’t
see that happening here? Note this is eeschema, not pcbnew.

Yes, it works fine also for symbols with yellow-body-fill.
