I personally have it set to dark blue and/or black by choice. The fonts are
always white. Regardless, have you tried changing colour schemes under
Control Center? If not, have you tried restoring from "Style"? This might
provide an indirect solution. It sounds as though your settings are being
modified incompletely or something dysfunctional cannot be overwritten
successfully (see below).

The size of the borders in Plastik can be customised. I think it's under
"Window Decoration". If this keeps changing involuntarily, this seems to lie
in agreement with the previous observation.

An easy yet laborious fix, which is probably bound to work, would be to
change username. Create your .kde profile from scratch and then overwrite
the existing one or migrate between user accounts.
