Colors of any style shouldn't be shown in the document colors palette until the user has assigned a style with color to a text/object. I think that behavior wasn't tested when implementing the new color widget because default styles have no color until now.
1) Open a new Writer document
2) Open the font color picker widget in the toolbar
3) Switch to document colors palette
4) Recognize that there is no color listed - close the widget
5) Right-click in the Writer page and select Edit style (no content should be written of this style!)
6) Change the font or background color to a color of your choice
7) Close the style dialog
8) Open the font color picker widget again
9) Switch to document colors palette
The style's color is shown.
As long as there is no content assigned with the style that has a color, no color should be shown in the document colors palette.
I would disagree, as i would expect the colors defined at the style level to appear in document colors. For example, if i opened a template which had various colors used in various styles, i would want to be able to see what colors are defined, even if the document is empty, so that i could utilize them.

That was my first idea too. To change the style color is also a conscious interaction and users may wonder why it has no bearing on the document colors if we turn this around. -> WONTFIX
Lets close this then.
