I agree with your conclusion, but note that DJD XII, Qumran Cave 4 VII:  
Genesis to Numbers does have one plate (#XLIX) in color.  In the same 
volume, there is a discussion of red ink on pp. 210-11, which notes 
Egyptian parallels among others, and a reference on p. 267 to a color 
transparency of an unidentified (and now missing) fragment.  No mention 
is made of green ink.
