Steps to reproduce:
 Open new text document.
 Choose a "nice" colour for the background of fields (Tools > Options > LibreOffice > Appearance > Custom Colors > Field shadings)
 Insert Formatting Marks: Menu > Insert > Formatting Marks. The background of inserted marks are displayed in the colour of fields.
Expected behaviour: Background of formatting marks should not be displayed in the colour of fields.
Comment: You can argue, that formatting marks are also a kind of fields. But fields are used for data which can change. This is not the case for formatting marks. Hence to my opinion this is a bug.

not reproducible with LO 184.108.40.206 (Win7 Home, 64bit)
Do you still have this behavior/issue with the latest release of LO? If not, then I would propose to mark it as Resolved.
For me it's still reproducible with Version 220.127.116.11 under Win 7 Prof, 32 bit.

I agree that this would be a useful enhancement. Status set to NEW. Severity set to enhancement as this has never existed. Version set to Inherited From OOo. Summary edited for greater clarity.
 I have tested the appearance of formatting marks and fields under Crunchbang 11 x86_64 running:
- v18.104.22.168 OOO330m19 Build: 6
- v22.214.171.124 Build ID: 70feb7d99726f064edab4605a8ab840c50ec57a
They always display using the same shading, as indicated in the description.
indeed a separate colour for formatting marks would be an enhancement. That would be fine, but that is not what I intended with my initial bug report. IMHO it's still a bug and I only expect that the normal document background colour is used for formatting marks. That would also be equal how Calc or Draw display formatting marks. But nevertheless I think this behaviour is only a minor problem and can be solved some day in future.
Setting version back from "Inherited From OOo" to what it was prior (for bugs marked enhancement), for QA tracking purposes. My mistake. Apologies.
