I love the internet, such negativity for no reason.

Why not let the OP try it out? Calibrating a monitor may affect this. I've fixed more than one Mac with black Mail preview that way. It wasn't with white type but it won't hurt to try will it?

I have to admit, the first time a customer called me about it I Googled it and saw calibrate the monitor. I thought it curious that would affect it. But I had faith and tried. It worked.

From an Apple discussion about it.

Perhaps, the display in question had been way out of calibration for some time and even prior to upping to Mojave??? ;-)

I love the internet because people take something as negative for no reason. You can read it how you will, but it was not negative.

The issue he is talking about is with dark mode and not colour accuracy which is what calibrating would adjust. If the monitor was so far out of whack that it was displaying completely different colours I would say there is a hardware problem that can probably not be solved by software adjustments.
