How to customize the list/treeview selection colour in custom Fluent Light theme?

The selection highlight should match the palette colour.

Note that text selection uses the primary colour:

However, TreeView selection still uses the blue colour:

After some digging, I found that I can change the selection colour to match my theme colour by changing

ContentBackgroundSelected.Color colour and ContentBackgroundSelected brush in Brushes.xaml. Hope this helps other in creating custom theme.
