The axis off does not set your 'background color' to default. It removes the axes from the figure making it practically hide it. This is why you see the default background. Just turn the axis on to see the axis of which you set the color to black.

If the desired result is simply to make the axes invisible, perhaps using the Axes Properties XColor, YColor, and ZColor values to 'none' will work. Also see the documentation section on NumericRuler Properties.

The desired result is a plot without axes on black background

Like this?
x = 1:10;
y = rand(1,10);
plot(x, y, '-r', 'LineWidth',2)
Ax = gca;
Ax.Color = 'k';
Ax.XColor = 'none';
Ax.YColor = 'none';
Add other function calls to change other properties, as necessary.
