It seems that this is the case. On December 6 Markus Illenseer made the
following comment on the NetBSD-amiga list:

So I picked up Xamiga24 from the experimental directory at Regensburg,
and indeed it did give a screen with a pale purple color (rather than the
black and white which that the mono server gives). There was also a bright
blue rectangle in the lower left corner of the X screen. This led me to
believe I had color in the X server. As you have pointed out, this is
the console cursor on another bitplane.
My apologies to anyone who was misled by my posting about color ECS with
Xamiga24. Perhaps Gary Henderson's current effort will result in a true
color X11R6 server for ECS.
