S&B and some other makers use colored lacquer, but AFAIK all makers seal the primers. Milspec ammo uses colored sealant so inspectors will know the sealant had been applied; it is no better than clear sealant.

In some military ammuntion, colored primer sealant is used for identification, and the Japanese used colored case mouth sealant for that purpose; pink was for ball ammunition, for example.
