This happens on my 3xl also - I don't think it's disabling it, rather in my case the connection to AA during the daytime seems to set the phone system theme to, what I presume is "default" in the code, but sets it to the light theme because it updates the display of the map depending on the light level or the time of day. I think that AA code just needs an update in the connection function that checks for a system theme alteration, aka dark mode, and honors that else, set the light theme. 

That's my two cents, not sure how this slipped through the cracks during testing.

Same here. Unplugging the device makes the system goes back to default (mine is on dark). This changed recently though. Before maybe a couple of weeks it kept the phone on the light theme and I had to go all the way to settings look for it and set it again. Even enabling force dark mode on developer options didn't use to work, now at least it's going back.

But whenever I plug into Android auto... Light theme (only on phone)

I can concur. I have an op7 pro running Android 10. When I set system wide theme to dark mode. Plugging USB into my 2016 Honda Civic Android auto immediately changes my phone's system wide theme to light in the day time. Is there a way to report bugs that developers see? This definitely needs fixed and is a major nuscance. I shouldn't have to change my theme back to dark mode every time I run Android auto (i use multiple times daily due to work commutes)

Galaxy 9 with Uconnect, all latest releases.  Maps in Android Auto go dark at night.  There is no way to turn them back to normal.  Customers should be able to choose between light and dark mode.
