The color blend mode is broken in CC2019  r.24

Open a new document in 16 bit Adobe RGB profile

Fill layer with 50% grey
Add new layer and fill with a straw color (R214 B 212 G173 in Adobe RGB)
Change blending mode to color

Result is green
Expected result - darker straw color

Workaround - enable legacy compositing
