The rule is saved in the list of colorfilters in memory, but based on the filter-name-prefix it is not saved to the colorfilters file. The name of the temporary coloring rule is used to overwrite the filter with a new filter if another conversation/field is chosen for the particular temporary color. That's why it has a fixed name prefix and a trailing index number. The "fixed" name is also used when clearing the temporary coloring rules (CTRL+SPACE).
