Because it simply cannot know what you've chosen.

As I explained elsewhere in this thread, Emacs simply asks the
terminal to display color number N and _assumes_ that each number
corresponds to the color in the normal ANSI 8-color sequence.  There's
no general-purpose API (AFAIK) to query Posix-standard terminal driver
for the actual colors that correspond to each color number.
