Read noise, which is the second noise type and a combined noise out of many different actual noise sources along the processing pipeline in the camera. That is the one which is a limiter for the post-processing latitude and also responsible for the color distortions. ...

Many, if not most, color issues arise from an imbalance between the color channels (black level) as opposed to from read noise itself.
Naturally, at low signal levels not having a "proper" zero reference makes a visible difference in the results.
