Hmmm. Yes, if this is indeed the case, then we may be running into that
color-vector multiplier thing.  Anything * <0, 0, 0> = <0, 0, 0>.
So maybe if an extreme change elicits a difference in the splotch color, try
changing your black to something small, but nonzero.

Maybe for ease of experimentation, define a scalar multiplier, and your black to
be that times <1, 1, 1>.

#declare SM = 0.1;
#declare Shade = SM * <1, 1, 1>;
#declare myBlack = pigment {rgb Shade}
