Modern styles, including dark color scheme for the forum

Cobalt and Radium don't have the default look-and-feel of the ArchLinux style.
It's not practical.

The default, ArchLinux style is usable, but not modern.

There's no easy way to switch to dark-styles for Tor users without getting fingerprinted.

Is that intentional that there's no proper styles, especially dark ones for the forum?
Is this a budget or a knowledge issue?

Fingerprinting isn't inherent to local css augmentartion, but your browser exposing that it's using an extension for that.

Either way, since the forum is supposed to move to a different platform as fluxbb is no longer maintained (status quo: discourse - good look hiding there) it's very unlikely that styles will ever get added.

That's wrong.
Extensions and profile-based tracking are not the same as CSS-based fingerprinting.

Didn't notice anything explicitly say about that in your links.
Nor dates.

Meanwhile, adding just a dark theme won't hurt no one, while others may benefit from it.

The last link says that the last fluxbb release was 5 years ago, the lead developer moved to Flarum and the fluxbb.org  domain is down.

Can you please explain how local css augmentation would facilitate https://csstracking.dev/ ?

It doesn't say there's a plan to move.

If your assumption that the whole CSS fingerprinting is based on example of the above website, then you're completely off of how CSS fingerprinting works.

It's about uniqueness of rendering a page.
That includes repaint.

There're plenty of fingerprinting approaches - the one commonly referred to as css-fingerprinting exploits the ability to load different resourced based on different client behaviors that relate to client conditions (media, window size, desktop size, …)

If you envision some fingerprinting based on the render performance of a webpage, and completely ignoring that you're talking about a service that requires you to login anyway, your browser hopefully strays usleep's around to mitigate that.

I've so far not seen you explaining how you envision local css augmentation would facilitate /any/ kind of fingerprinting.
The one I can tell you is t hat browsers typically/often require extensions for that.
