Interesting question John, not sure I know the answer. I'd add that at morning colors there is generally a "formation" of everyone but the off watch, and evening colors consists of just the color guard. I suspect it is more an administrative issue than anything. The navigational day begins at noon but is of no significance to anyone but the mates. There's a trivia thread going here, a couple of pages back, and this would be a good one for it.
