Actually, after reading th code, what is going on with the colour
selector is that it converts to rgb and back again, and the conversion

black is often visible, but effectively GIMP (actually BABL) is
subtracting the black from the other colours, which saves ink.

and you can see this by experimentation.

When GIMP has native CMYK image support, it will need to make
undercolour removal optional, but for now, since the RGB values are the
same and that's all that's stored in the image data, you're stuck with
