I think you're referring to what (c)twm calls the "titlebar buttons"?
Perhaps they look better without 3D settings like

That is possibly because the WorkSpaces setting specifies 4 colours for
each workspace. The 4th is the "bg-root" colour.

I use "xv -root ..." to get a (changing) background image, and I have
only 3 colours in my WorkSpaces settings.

You can also specify a background pixmap in the WorkSpaces (see the
manual). I never researched if this is more memory efficient than using
xsetroot, or less, or the same.
