Multiple entries of the same color in Color library *sometimes* possible


I'm creating a color palette with diverging color scales as groups for example a group with 10 steps and a group of 12 steps:

As you can see, there are multiple instances of the same hex codes in these groups - which I would like to make as individual groups in the craft color library, like this: 

The problem is that *sometimes* Craft allows me to create multiple color swatches with the same hex code (which I want to do and assign them to different groups) and *sometimes* it gives me an error notification that the color "already exists in this category."

Is there a rule for this, and therefore a way around it?
