Two designed sites I checked have their per-site meta orange again:

rpg meta

puzzling meta

However, Literature's meta is not:

lit meta

Looks like a regression of Why did all sites turn orange? - as far as I can tell with spot-checks, only the metas of sites with custom designs with a *meta.stackexchange.com domain (Meta SO and Meta SU are fine).

    Seems to hit the sites with site designs, but not the others? IPS meta is still normal too, workplace se has the orange meta....

    Having a look. No secret that we've been touching some behind-the-scenes theming stuff, and it's proving incredibly tricky to test these. On it! Commented Jul 22, 2021 at 16:32

Fixed! We had a variable rename go sideways on us. Those metas that inherit the default meta theming have now been restored to their former glory.
