The darker color should be the same look as if the board was wet with water or any other clear liquid. The oil penetrates for protection, but leaves the board with a “wet” look. If it is an end grain board, even more oil will penetrate, giving an even darker color than face grain boards. I guess the color change is subjective, I tend to like it better with oil, it seems richer/deeper. I am unaware of a way around it, buy there may be one.
