[Gimp-developer] What is the purpose of the checkerboard pattern in the color history buttons?

In the color history of the FG/BG color selector dialog, the buttons may appear split in two along a diagonal with the color on top left and a checkerboard pattern on the bottom right. This happens when the color is obtained using the color picker button in the same dialog. However I can't figure out what this display is indicating. The checkerboard pattern would normally hint at some alpha/transparency value, but the color displayed has no alpha channel?
