Using Writer there are different types of fields.

Dynamic document properties (author, title) and custom properties (created by user or add-ons); and

Static fields that can be used to prompt users to add content (Ctrl-F2 the select 'functions tab' then select 'input field').

All these fields as well as page numbers, table captions and dates all appear the same colour. The preferences section should allow the user to change the colour of these different field types so they can be easily distinguished when reviewing a document.
