You can pick one of the following two answers:

1) We already render them in a distinct color:

https://github.com/gravitystorm/openstreetmap-carto/blob/master/style/style.mss

Rendering features with a distinct symbol or pattern in addition if that 
symbol does not transport any additional information is something we 
typically try to avoid.

2) There are no parts of the Earth that are not covered by a mapped area 
since the global coastline divides the Earth surface into land (on the 
left of the coastline) and ocean (on the right of the coastline).
