Thank you for responding. Looking at your code, I've found the issue causing the problem.

It looks like the problem is caused by the theme being applied "AFTER" the SelectionIndicatorSettings
is being applied.

The SelectionIndicatorSettings are being applied before the theme settings even though the
SelectionIndicatorSettings come "LATER" in the xaml.

             <syncfusionTheme:LightTheme xaml:Name="LightTheme"/>

Hi K Carter, 
We have confirmed “SelectionIndicatorSettings Color property does not work when we use themes” as a bug and logged a defect report. The fix for this issue will be available as a patch on 1st November 2019. 
If you have any more specification/precise replication procedure or a scenario to be tested, you can add it as a comment in the portal link above. 
Until you can resolve this issue by setting SyncPrimaryColor in the ResourceDictionary to set Background color of the selectionstrip. Please refer the below code. 
Code snippet[XAML]: 
            <syncfusionTheme:LightTheme /> 
                <Color x:Key="SyncPrimaryColor">Green</Color> 
Please refer the below link to know the theme setting keys for SfSegmentedControl, 
Note - Please update the currently using nuget version of yours to provide a patch for this issue. We only provide patch for Main release and SP release version. We don’t have support to provide patch for weekly nugets and Beta release versions. 
Hemalatha M.

Hi K Carter, 
Sorry for the inconvenience caused. We have used dynamic resource for themes support in our control. By default, direct property values are not working for nested classes if we set dynamic resource. Since the value set for Color property overridden by dynamic resource value. But we can resolve this issue by setting value for dynamic resource key in control resource as per below code snippet. 
<buttons:SfSegmentedControl SelectionTextColor="Yellow" FontColor="Red" Color="Pink"
                                    VisibleSegmentsCount="4" SegmentCornerRadius="20" CornerRadius="20">
                <Color x:Key="SyncPrimaryColor">Black</Color>
                <buttons:SelectionIndicatorSettings CornerRadius="20" />
