pageColor returns such a value when page has applied label color 'use master color', that's how it is,
in such a cases you can check label color of applied master page. But what if page on master spread returns use_master_color?
I tried accessing page.appliedMaster.pageColor which in turn returned the same thing.
So even the pageColor property on the master doesn't return the color. I believe there must be a way to extract the colour that is actually applied ot the page.
it is because your master page has applied 'use_master_color' (i know it is strange)
from my experience if master page has applied any other value, that actually is a color, than pageColor return color value
So there is no definite way of finding out the colour of a page other than this? There must be some way, right. Because I set the page color myself and still am not able to fetch the color using this property.
