The wood itself...if there were any color added it may bleach out.

I just looked at a maple floor under a throw rug...very little
difference light to dark but there is a marked difference in color - the
protected portion is much yellower. Urethane, not acrylic.

In my experience, light woods generally get darker, dark ones lighter.
Walnut for example gets lighter and warmer. Ditto butternut.
Irrespective of the finish. I have a makeshift work table made of
"white wood"...the sun has darkened the unfinished wood to a medium tan.
