As suggested from forum  post, adding more details and screenshots regarding this problem.

System: Artix Linux (Arch derivative).
Desktop: XFCE
Qt version: 5.12.0
VBox: 6.0.0r127442

qt5ct and qt5-styleplugins installed correctly. Variable QT_QPA_PLATFORMTHEME has been set. VLC and other qt5-based applications display normally with theme settings.

Screenshots added:

1) VBox6_Main_MouseOver - shows main virtualbox window with the mouse positioned over the settings toolbar button.
2) VBox6_Settings - shows the settings dialog presented

This also impacts Gnome's dark mode. Generally dark mode is much easier on the eyes but with virtualbox it makes the UI all but unusable!
