Now I'm completely confused.  Whitespace mode doesn't just show the
trailing whitespace, it shows _all_ whitespace characters in a
distinct way, at least by default.  Just turn on that mode in
*scratch*, and you will see every SPC character displayed as a middle
dot with a distinct color.  If you want just the trailing spaces have
a distinct appearance, you need to customize whitespace-style to
include just 'trailing', I believe.

The wrap prefix produced by Adaptive Wrap is made of spaces, just not
spaces that come from the buffer.  And since by default Whitespace
mode displays _all_ space characters in that special way, you get the
wrap prefix displayed with those dots as well.

Am I missing something?

More confusion: so you _do_ want to see those dots in the wrap prefix,
but expect them to have some colors?  Which colors did you expect to
see, and why?
