I would argue that it is secondarily. First you have to have a color at a location.

That depends on how the Bayer reconstruction code works.

If we assume they are trying to keep the color rendition good, then we can assume that they are trying to keep the mean color accuracy as good as possible. Then they will use an algorithm that don't compromise this. Then the color accuracy per pixel may be low, but the integrated accuracy of a cluster of nearby pixels is high.

NOTE - that even if we had readings of all three RGB in each point, this would be the case, due to photon noise.
