When you select a color for the layer, you have the ability to create a set of saved colors for reuse between different layers.

When you do this, the color only stay saved while you are inside this specific Diagram. If you move to another diagram, the saved colors are gone. 

They are also gone if you move back to the Diagram you initially saved them in.

How to repeat:
Create two Diagrams, then create a Layer in both.

Then select to change the color on one of the Layers, and then change to a custom color, chose to add said color to your reuse/defined colors.

Go to the other Diagram, and try to pick the same color from the reuse/defined colors, and you can see it is gone.

Suggested fix:
Make the colors you define and save for reuse, save globally so they are available anywhere in the model file.

If possible, store the colors globally, so they are available across all model files.
