So making the autofill background-color more !important solves some of the issues, but newegg also uses autocomplete=new-password for their address field, autocomplete=off for the city field, and uses an absolutely position select element over a span for the State dropdown. This means the state select element doesn't receive the autofill styling since the "real", or visible, select element is only the dropdown that appears.

We can fix the autocomplete=off issue, solving the autocomplete=new-password issue might be possible, and there's no way we can fix the absolutely positioned element issue since this is a website specific issue.
