I think you are correct - but only if you keep xpdf open. Close it and
it reverts to the current directory.

Anyway, I installed atril.

The OP had two "problems".

The visibility of the found item is treated by Alexander V. Makartsev.
My atril is on Xfce and altering the desktop environment theme does
indeed alter the highlight colour. The OP will come along in a while
and tell us it does the same for him.

The second point is incorrect; a misobservation? atril behaves as xpdf
does and starts at the displayed page.
