man dialog section on color

 Interpret embedded "\Z" sequences in the dialog text by the fol-
  lowing character, which tells dialog  to  set  colors  or  video
  attributes: 0 through 7 are the ANSI used in curses: black, red,
  green, yellow, blue, magenta, cyan and white respectively.  Bold
   is  set  by  'b', reset by 'B'.  Reverse is set by 'r', reset by
   'R'.  Underline is set by 'u', reset by 'U'.  The  settings  are
   cumulative,  e.g.,  "\Zb\Z1" makes the following text bold (per-
   haps bright) red.  Restore normal settings with "\Zn".

Without the --colors don't know how \Z would be handled, or what
happens with what appears after the \Z

yes (without --colors, \Z has no special meaning).
