Default [Q] Status and Nav Bar Fading?

If you look closely at these screenshots (, the icons and buttons are fully white when the nav and status bars are transparent. However when they aren't, the buttons fade to about 70% and to a grey.
Is there any way (preferably with xposed) to keep these buttons and icons opaque all the time?
