When the text was created in a former version it keeps as it is until any change to the text has been done.
Causes are an improved text engine, or another dictionary in the preferences.
I don't understand - -the text is re-ragging due to "improved" text engine or another dictionary in the prefs? We won't be able to delete unused colors in any legacy documents now without text re-ragging?

Robert—the original poster—did not tell if the text was colored with the color that was replaced.
I assume, that yes. That would mean that at least one value of one applied property of text has changed. And that could enforce a redraw using the current engine behind the paragraph composer feature.

The text was not colored with the color swatch that was being deleted. The color swatch that was in the doc is a spot color that is used to indicate that the file is a Draft. The word "DRAFT" appears on the file in the spot color. Once the file goes to mechanical prep the word "DRAFT" is removed, as is the spot color. There is absolutely no rhyme or reason why this should be happening. We have not experienced this issue previously. Even if the text had been spec-ed w/this color - -changing text color has never, and should never, result in re-ragging. If this is supposed to be an improvement then Adobe needs to go back to the drawing board and try again. This is a huuuge problem.
Maybe in your case it would help to set the word "DRAFT" on a separate layer and turn off the visibility of the layer or change it to "non-printing"?
I can remember a case where changing the color value of a swatch was enforcing a redraw of the composition. From a "marker color" like a red RGB to "Black". But I'm not sure if that document was a legacy one from an older InDesign version…
Your case is new to me. Thank you for reporting this.
I am not a big fan of leaving unused spot colors in docs- -nor- -changing layers to non-printing when releasing files. I know - - it should be OK, but I have experienced printer's turning on 'non-printing' layers. Once burned twice shy. Thanks for your reply.
