Upon getting back to my ship view, I did the same with the same results.

It seems it's over-zealous black coloring for shadows and not necessarilly the textures themselves?

I can post comparison screenshots if that would help, or others could do the same with their lighting settings and see if that has an effect. If that would be useful at all, of course.
I did the same but put both shadow and light to low setting and the black areas disappeared just as it did with you.
However I only put the light setting back to high and left the shadow setting at low and the black areas returned and stayed regardless of what I set the shadow setting to.
