Importing CMYK logos into Photoshop as smart objects (to retain the vector
qualities) results in Pure CMYK Black portions appearing "lighter" than the
RGB background's blacks (rich black).

The printer will be printing in numeric RGB, so I don't really need the CMYK
layers to remain CMYK.

The project still says it's RGB, but double-clicking the logo (smart object)
pulls up Illustrator, which reveals this object is indeed CMYK.

I was the blacks to be black, and I'm guessing the best way to do this would
be to edit the logo in illustrator so that it uses RGB black, and not pure
cmyk black. How do I do this? Change from CMYK to RGB in Illustrator, I
mean... so I can then save and return to the Photoshop project, and
hopefully see those blacks as rich blacks.

Open your logo in Illustrator, go to "File" on the menu bar, then
"Document Color Mode" and change it to RGB.
