SVG as Image improperly rendered as bitmap

When importing a SVG as an Image, its inserted into the PDF as a raster image with bad compression as well as replacing transparency with a white background. How do I get it to insert it as a vector image drawing?

double originalWidth = 0, originalHeight = 0, ratioX = 1, ratioY = 1, ratio = 1;

//Using SVG Nuget Package to accurately read SVG dimensions
//and to change them
//https: //github.com/vvvv/SVG
SvgDocument svgDocument = Svg.SvgDocument.Open(imagePath);
originalWidth = svgDocument.Width;
originalHeight = svgDocument.Height;

//aspect ratios
ratioX = maxWidth / originalWidth ?? 1;
ratioY = maxHeight / originalHeight ?? 1;

//smallest ratio wins
ratio = Math.Min(ratioX, ratioY);

float newWidth = (float)Math.Ceiling(originalWidth * ratio);
float newHeight = (float)Math.Ceiling(originalHeight * ratio);

svgDocument.Width = new Svg.SvgUnit((float)newWidth);
svgDocument.Height = new Svg.SvgUnit((float)newHeight);

var svg = new Image
   FileType = ImageFileType.Svg,
   IsInLineParagraph = true,

   // new height and width
   FixWidth = newWidth,
   FixHeight = newHeight,
   IsApplyResolution = true

var stream = new MemoryStream();

svg.ImageStream = stream;

return svg;

I would have uploaded the SVG but your forum blocks that filetype.

Still an issue even with the latest version, 21.9.0

       var icon = new Image
            File = speciesRightTagPath,
            FileType = ImageFileType.Svg,
            FixWidth = 284,
            FixHeight = 96,
            IsApplyResolution = false,
            ImageScale = 1,
        FloatingBox iconBox = new FloatingBox();
        iconBox.VerticalAlignment = VerticalAlignment.Center;
        iconBox.Left = DocConfig.PageWidth - DocConfig.TrimBoxOffset - icon.FixWidth;
        iconBox.Top = box.Top - topMargin;
