Am currently using a Samsung UN46B7000 as my living room display and while I think it's mostly a phenomenal unit, it exhibits extreme flashlighting when viewed in complete darkness. To an extent where the end credits of a film - when it's white text scrolling against a black background - look vaguely splotchy.

I'm considering upgrading the unit for a 55-inch 3D model, and am ready to sacrifice brightness and go with a plasma unless LED tech has improved the flashlighting problems over the past few years since 2009. Could someone tell me if there have been improvements in this department?

Actually there have many reports flashlighting and clouding effects have gotten worse on edge-lit LEDs as they have gotten even thinner panels.

The new Samsung EH series places the LED's at the back of the panel eliminating clouding/flashlighting.. I have the 32 EH5000 and theres no flashlighting issue, A friend of mine has the Series 8 55" and there is a very small hint of flashlighting but it can provide deeper black levels as compare to my 32EH5000.

You can not beat the Lg Lv 9500 nano led tv.Over 2000 led's and 280 local dimming zones!
I also have a samsung 81 F with local dimming and it is one of the first(2006) on the market,but it's not as good as the Lg.
Plasma are gray during dark scene compared to the local dimming LCD i have.

Unless you go with a Sony 929, Sharp Elite, or a new LG LM9600 then you might as well not even bother with an LED if you're looking for good uniformity.
You also have be aware of blooming with local dimming LEDs. It's an artifact that's preferable to flashlighting but it's annoying nonetheless. FWIW I barely see any flashlighting on the sharp elite.

The 47LM9600 would make a perfect PC monitor if its panel response time is 5ms (max) on any color to color.
