"The Document colors palette shows the colors used in the current document." found on page https://help.libreoffice.org/7.4/en-US/text/shared/01/05210200.html

Therefore this seems to be fixed.
What do you think Heiko?

Thanks Olivier.

Note: We discussed whether the current shortcomings of this feature should be mentioned in the online help and Olivier decided against. Better to fix an issue than document it.
