That's how FORMCHECKBOX fields are added as default. To remove grey backgrounds from legacy forms please check doNotShadeFormData available in docxSettings ( Please note that the support of this setting may change in some DOCX readers.

Premium licenses can also use HTML Extended to prevent adding that grey background using phpdocx_simplefield tag and the doNotShadeFormData attribute.
