It seems that the background color of a UIAxes cannot be set to 'none'. See the attached app for an alternative. It set the background color to the color of the figure window.

This behavior of uiaxes has changed in MATLAB R2020b.
If you check the release notes for R2020b:
BackgroundColor property of UIAxes has no effect
Setting the BackgroundColor property on a UIAxes object no longer has any effect. The area around the plot box is transparent regardless of the value of the BackgroundColor property.
