Look at that chart. You can clearly see that the last two colors are different from the ones immediately before it. I did note, in the stuff you quoted, that it was a timeline thing, rather than a division thing, but either way, it's personal preference.

I'm guessing they had some fabric left over, and made some later style uniforms with old true blue, or something like that.

The chart clearly shows the distinction between what they call Type A (colored chest from TNG) and Type B (colored shoulders from DS9/VOY). The Type B ones are a new design with new colors.
