When new Meta data is added to the project (via for example the data import, the compute variable page, the grouped answer page etc.), the new meta data will use the colors from the “Standard palette” category by default.
When setting up the color template, you can select if the colors will be picked from any other category. The option to select the category that will be assigned to new meta data is shown in the image below.
