What is meant here?
a. If a color is added in Tools > Options that it is added to the
predefined palette and not to the user.soc; or
b. that the predefined palettes cannot be changed in any other dialog?

If a: how must a user grasp the logic of that, and understand that added
colors end up in different places (both file and UI) ?
If b... ?

Assuming that a color added by the user is special, it makes sense to
have it available always. Showing it as a separate (not at the end of
the colors of predefined palettes) prevents confusion on adding/removing
colors. Not showing them always, will confuse adding and removing colors

I do not get info from the discussion last minutes, nor from the pad nor
from https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=94551
