Then you probably have an LCD screen which is connected with a digital
cable. In that case rgba=rbg is set automagically by default.

You can switch if of and use grayscale anti-aliasing setting
rgba=none, i.e. by using the following rule in your ~/.fonts.conf:

<match target="font" >
  <edit mode="assign" name="rgba" >

Just try what you like better.
