The colour listed as 'automatic' is used by the $NameColor and $BorderColor attributes; note the lowercase initial letter, automatic, as the spelling is case-sensitive. Importantly to note is this colour value cannot be customised by the user, unlike other named colours.

If automatic is displayed as one of a note's Displayed Attributes, the colour chip for 'automatic' always shows as a dark red (#6F0000) regardless of the colour actually used, e.g. $NameColor may show as white in Map view but as dark red in the note's colour chip. If Color-type attributes that do not support the 'automatic' token are set to the value 'automatic' the resulting colour actually used is #6F0000. In some later versions, this 'mis-set' colour equates to a green, #00D001.
