This issue is still present in

Build ID: 81898c9f5c0d43f3473ba111d7b351050be20261
Locale: es-ES (es_ES)

on Windows 7 (64-bit)

The problem is that the issue's description is wrong. Databar color is already different in Writer and Word at importing time. I change the description accordently.

Still happens in

Version: (x64)
Build ID: 59939d2490726336546c7ad05082d23031074e12
CPU threads: 4; OS: Windows 6.3 Build 9600; UI render: Skia/Raster; VCL: win
Locale: hu-HU (hu_HU); UI: en-US
Calc: CL

What really happens is that there is several rules in Excel for the same cell ranges in a random-ish order and because Calc groups the CF rules by cell ranges, the original order of the rules is not retained.

We have three rules for B2:D7, one for B1:D7 and four for E2:E7 in this order:

(1) B2:D7
(2) E2:E7
(3) E2:E7
(4) E2:E7
(5) B1:D7
(6) B2:D7
(7) B2:D7
(8) E2:E7
(9) E2:E7
(10) E2:E7

Calc groups (1) (6) (7) since they are for the same range and then puts (5) before the group. 
This way the Orange-Gold rule (5) gets precedence over the Green-Red-Blue (1) and that's on the screenshots.

Also the grouping of E2:E7 rules is interesting. Two groups are created, the first group consists only of the Green rule (4) and the second group is made from (2) (3) (8) (9) (10) - so Green takes precedence over the "Blue marker color 1" (2) and "Water blue marker color 5" (3) rules.

The rule (4) has the Excel setting "Border" set to "Continous" border (which has also a Green color set) unlike the other five rules that have the "No border" setting.

Unfortunately Calc does not have a Border setting to visualize that difference.
