Well that's dumb. Are you 100% sure there isn't a brightness setting you can tweak buried in the Series X settings menus somewhere? You can do that for the PS4 or PS5 controllers for example. Worth checking at least (if you haven't already.)
I don't think the Xbox controller's logo light has a brightness setting anywhere. Even within Steam you can adjust the brightness and color schemes for all of Sony's controllers. Those settings aren't there for the X1 or XS1 pads. It's not in the Accessories app. The Xbox One doesn't have that setting anywhere either. If they added it, it would be exclusive to the Series X and/or the Elite Controllers. It's pretty faint so I've honestly never noticed it, but that doesn't mean it isn't annoying for those who do I guess. I found the default/bright PS4 pad lights to be kind of obnoxious, though.
