Colour of the background in Map views.
This colour is in fact used for for the background of all main views (Outline, Explorer, Chart, Treemap).
The attribute's default is not set but it inherits the default of
#f2f2e6 (a buff colour) from the Preferences Maps pane.
A number of utility views also use $MapBackgroundColor (the document-level value, not the current note's) to draw the background of their list panes.
In Map views it is also used as the primary colour for background patterns.
$MapBackgroundColor can be set via a map view tab's Map Settings pop-over, 'Color' colour controls.
