When you set the BackgroundColor of a static text box to "none", a black patch appears rather than transparency.
As a workaround, instead of a static text box you can open GUIDE and add a Axes in its place. After adding the axes, right click on the axes and select "property inspector"; scroll down to "Visible" and de-select the checkbox (visible = off).
Save, and close the GUI. Open the m-file and go to the opening function ("..._OpeningFcn"). Within the opening function you can set the text and specify the axes handle in the first input:
text(handles.axes1,.5,.5,'StaticTextHere','FontSize', 14,...
'HorizontalAlignment','Center','VerticalAlignment', 'middle') %this centeres the text in the invisible axes

x = 0:.1:2*pi;
y = sin(x);
text(1,0,'Transparent background image','color','red')
% save to transparented image
set(gcf, 'color', 'none');
set(gca, 'color', 'none');
exportgraphics(gcf,'transparent.eps',... % since R2020a
