Why is field going transparent in non-current records?

I have a feeling this is going to end up being a forehead-slapper when someone helps me figure it out, but in the course of editing one of the Claris-supplied templates while trying to learn how to use a plugin, I'm running into a weird interface behavior. I've got a list view layout with a couple of fields from the current table and one from a related table, with the typical setup of hiding the current-table field that contains the foreign key behind the display field from the related table that shows the value I want the user to see. The problem is that the display field is transparent on every record in the list view except the current one, so that the text with the UID value from the foreign key field is clearly visible underneath the display field text. I've got an opaque fill color set on the display field and no conditional formatting anywhere. What the heck is going on?

See attached. The bottom record is the current one; the text of the two fields is visible superimposed in the other, non-current records.

Style for active state?

As far as I can see, the field is not set to be transparent for any of the four available states.
