If you set an attribute on a children it will not change if the parent is modified. And there is no easy way to revert attribute settings as discussed in bug 89826. So what happens is that you set automatic font color for Text Body (could be any other value) and switching on/off doesn't change that. If you change the value of the parent "Default" it will not be taken into the children.
