It may be because it is my first interaction with Affinity Designer but I think it is weird that I can set borders and background colours on my artboards and they are simply ignored, it just sits there and does nothing. It would really not only be nice to be able to see those borders but also set defaults for artboards on the document and decide whether they show on export or are only another visual aid. Another way around would be to remove the fill and brush from artboards and enable only a visually delimiting border around artboards, either by document or globally.

How are you setting them? And what OS are you on?

I can at least get a background color (Fill) to work, though a Stroke that I set for an Artboard does not seem to have any effect.

That's the thing. I have tried only using the stroke settings on the toolbar.

I'm on a Windows 10, latest update.
