Thank you. This is very informative.
Indeed the layer has transparency and areas that have to be semi 
transparent on blending.

Does this limitation of PIL mean that if the source wms serves images 
with transparency AND semi transparent features (and Mapproxy config 
does NOT have any transparency settings) the result of a multi-layer 
request will have these problems?

Can these PIL problems be mitigated by having the source WMS serve 
images on a white background and set mapproxy transparency color to white?

The transparent areas in your image are blended over with your opacity value, but even if these areas are transparent they still have color value, and in your case they are either black or white.
