I didn't face this problem in R2020a update 2, however, I remember observing something like this (not exactly sure if it was exportgraphics). Have you installed update 2? Alternatively, I suggest using this excellent package by Yair on FEX: https://www.mathworks.com/matlabcentral/fileexchange/23629-export_fig. I have found that this usually gives a better output as compared to the built-in function from MATLAB. Download this and add it to MATLAB's path and run it like this
export_fig(gcf,[filenames(1:end-4),'.tiff'], '-r300');

Thanks for sugeesting export_fig command. I have not upgraded 2 yet. I will update it soon. Few days ago, the same command was exporting the images correct wiht the current version. Suddenly, it is gving the black images for some reason. I will let you know the progress after the update.
