Lightroom Book Module Background Color Picker Bug

It appears that the LR Book module treats the Background HSL color picker as sRGB color profile color values, but views it and the placed photos as ProPhoto RGB color profile tagged images. This makes it impossible to match the Background color to an object (sky, etc.) in a placed image. For more details please see this post in the LR Forum: https://forums.adobe.com/message/9176957#9176957

Below is a ProPhoto RGB image placed in the LR CC 2015.7 Book module with Backgound Color Picker values HSL 220 30 70 used to match it. The 'Export Book to PDF' shows a Background color identical to the same ProPhoto RGB placed image when it is tagged as an sRGB image. Clearly the Background picker's color management has a bug.
