"More dark mode options" not showing list of individual apps

Xiaomi Mi Note 10
Hello there,
as written in the title I am trying to figure out why the settings app does not show the apps list to turn off dark mode for sigle applications.

CONTEXT:
MIUI Global 13.0.1 (Android 11), Dark mode enabled.
Some minor (no root/no roms flashing) tinkering has been made on the device, including:
  • Uninstalled some community-recognized bloatware via adb
  • Revoked some highly-sensitive intrusive permission for some system/not-system apps from Settings > Privacy Protection > Special Permissions, however no permission has been revoked from the "Settings" app

EXPECTED BEHAVIOUR:
Opening Settings > Display > More dark mode options shows a list of apps (under "Individual apps") for whom you can disable the made-in-miui dimming.

OBTAINED BEHAVIOUR:
The "individual apps" list is empy, as shown in the screenshot linked above.

ALREADY ATTEMPTED (AND DIDN'T SOLVE):
  • Rebooting the device (disappointed, I expected this to work)
  • Accessing the dark mode settings from the notification area
  • Opening the settings in split-screen with another app
  • Opening the settings after opening as many apps as possible to fill the RAM
  • Waiting 5+ minutes in the "More dark mode options" screen
  • Swiping the line just above "Individual apps" up
  • Accessing the settings page while mobile data and Wi-Fi are turned off
What are the other possible ways to solve this? Is there a particular system app who is responsible for the app list showing in this setting? Or is there a way to completely turn off Individual apps dark mode while keeping dark mode on?
Thank you in advance for the replies and screw Xiaomi for making no option for this and making this "in-app-enforced-darkmode-wannabe" enabled by default for every app.

Unfortunately all I can add is I'm experiencing the same issue and haven't found a solution. I think it must have been introduced with an MIUI update as I know in the past the dark mode app list has been populated.

Still not working for me. I did find this thread for a different Xiaomi phone with the same MIUI issue. Seems someone has made a Magisk module if you have a rooted phone: https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/...t-miui-13-redmi-note-10.4404923/post-87160523
However I haven't rooted my phone (in case I had any issues with e.g. banking apps) so haven't tried this myself. I'm just hoping Xiaomi eventually fix it in an update.

That is absolutely crazy, how Xiaomi messed up their own software. It has not been showing the apps for me for long now and it is so annoying to have to switch dark mode off entirely every time an app doesnt display elements correctly, just because Xiaomi forces their weird dark mode adaptation into apps that dont support dark mode natively. I dont get how they thought that feature being on by default for every app was a good idea...
EDIT: Also thank you for the link but I don't want to root my phone either, too many security related concerns.
 
It is working, the UI just stalls when loading the apps list. when you open the "More dark mode options"

place your finger on the line that says "individual apps" and swipe up. if u did it right it will show the list., just keep swiping up from that line until the list shows

This issue was discussed in the xiaomi forums (c.mi) and this is the only way to access the dark mode page.

I tried this several times and in multiple directions (I can actually swipe the interface up), swiping the line app to the top, but it keeps showing no app; there keeps being a problem on loading the list of apps for some reason
