Issue using Calibre to convert from EPUB to MOBI

We are trying (and failing) to produce sidebars on Kindle. We can get them to show in the ePub no problem but as soon as we use Calibre to convert from .epub to .mobi our nice light grey background and frames just disappear.

We know it's possible to have a grey background on small sections of text in .mobi files because we have several sample books that show this feature. We just can't figure out what we need to do to reproduce this in our own document.

Any ideas what's going wrong?

You're probably not doing anything wrong. Your example documents in mobi format use what is likely a very obscure and poorly documented aspect of mobiml markup. If you want it supported you would need to open a bug with your source document and the expected mobiml output (you can use the mobiml from your examples). There's no guarantee that it would get fixed, but that's what would be needed to get started.
