The engine determines whether a button should be 'themed' in the current 
native theme (assuming the lookAndFeel is 'native') based on the 
borderWidth and threeD properties.

If the borderWidth is 2 and threeD is true then it will render it using 
the system theme which won't use most of the specified colors on the 
object as they are determined by the theme itself.
