Well this bug is not duplicate of 233142.
Just investigated a  bit and it seems it happens as the caret color shall follow the caret color of the reference text field. That little change would resolve the dark caret problem on DarkMetal LAF. DarkNimbus theme needs some additional patches (redefining the caret color for text components) to make it work.
