Color contrast is insufficient for label/placeholder text within search and filter input fields on Light theme:
the color contrast ratio is 3.1:1 for the light grey regular text against white background while it’s expected to be 4.5:1 and higher.

While placeholder text is not explicitly included in the WCAG, in this case the on-screen text in the placeholder is playing a role of an on-screen label text for these inputs
