1) Open Writer
2) Type some text and set its color to Green
3) Open up the color widget and notice that Green is in the document colors palette
4) Press undo or set the selected text color back to automatic and see that Green wasnt removed from the document colors palette

Confirming. The reverted color remains in the document colors even after reloading it. The property is stored in the document as <style:style style:name="T2" style:family="text"><style:text-properties fo:color="#ffff00"/></style:style>. But <text:span text:style-name="T2"> isn't used anymore in the document.

Likely the issue is true for all other properties as well. For the colors a solution could be to compare the list of styles against what is actually used.

Colour is still present in the colour widget after redo or changing text to automatic, but after saving and reloading colour has been removed.
