Not sure either, just seems to make sense.
Even my grey, while they don't actually get "corn marks" where he has some slightly worse than the usual bumps and bruises areas they come back dark. Of course, he looks nothing like those roans I posted but the more serious injuries (he is rather accident prone) do not come back white, there is more color. Hence my logic, I think it's something similar to grey.
Interested to see what someone who actually has one thinks.
Also, I've known a few horses where the coat comes back slightly darker even if they aren't roaned/greyed out.
