I allowed leaves to fall in my pond (never any pest- or herb- icides allowed anywhere on my property)and I intentionally put driftwood in it. They have turned the water tea colored (completely expected) but I know tannins can be a good thing . If I get activated carbon to clarify the water, is that just purely cosmetic or does it improve water quality?
I've tried a blackwater setup for my betta with driftwood and IAL and I like the aesthetic. I think I'd prefer more clarity in the pond though.

If your not using it to remove meds or chemicals then yes its just cosmetic.
