PointSize vs plot themesPlotTheme

PointSize and AbsolutePointSize seem to not be working quite right in ListPlot in version 11.1. For example, the examples controlling point size shown at http://reference.wolfram.com/language/howto/ChangeTheSizeOfPointsInA2DScatterPlot.htmlHowTo examples controlling point size fail to alter the point size if $PlotTheme = "Monochrome". Am I wrong to expect that options specified at the individual plot level should override the plot theme? As a specific example (intentionally exaggerating the point size):

(* $PlotTheme = "Monochrome"; *)  (* uncomment to see problem *)
testData = Prime[Range[25]]
ListPlot[testData, PlotStyle -> {AbsolutePointSize[18]}]

As a separate but related question, am I right that the default point size in ListPlot under the Monochrome theme is unaesthetically large, even for plots with few points?
