The new pattern section (previously called and implemented as tab) has full support for individual presets. However the pattern colors (foregound and background) are not stored.
Currently, the colors(foreground and background) are loaded by parsing the .png file in standard.sop->Pictures so there is no need to store the pattern colors in the xml file. Any specific functionality request to change the current workflow ?
If there is a configuration for colors it has to be persistent. Right now it's neither stored in the presets nor applied to the shape.

Its related to this bug - https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=100731 . Once the preview (under the preset list) is updated with background and foreground colors , it can be applied to shapes and saved as presets. I have mentioned the steps to update the preview in the bug report. Confirm again ?
