What is it I see on so many rifles, they are colored on some right out of the refurb crate. I have seen red, yellow, white & a mixture of colors on the barrel shank. I assume its some kind of paint but why some & not others. Thanks

Nobody knows. Heck, we've had extensive arguments (based on nothing) over WHAT was used, much less why. All we really know is some batches have been imported with the markings filled in with stuff. My personal opinion is that it all started out white, but became discolored (red, orange, etc) by grease. oil, age. Could be wrong, but who cares?
