So just to circle back around on this from yesterday (read it but didn't have a chance to respond).
This one does not have anything to do with Jellybean or Ice Cream Sandwich, this is a customization feature that HTC added to Sense 4, and they have tweaked a little bit for Sense 5.
(HTC's half way attempt to try to hang with the competition that have many more customization features built into their messaging applications)
So as you have learned, you may not save much battery with the black background on LCD screens but you may be able to save your eyes some strain from looking at white screens all the time
