Strange non-existing Bevel&Emboss effect on certain color combinations

There is a big problem related to something I don't know. Let's say I have a bright orange square, on top of it, a smaller square with a bright blue color. The blue square makes strange margins, on the right there is a white margin, and on the left there is a weak black margin. I checked for the layer style and other lines, there is nothing. I saved it as a jpeg and it confirmed it, the margins are still there even though the layer is blank except the color.
If you look on the right there is a white line and on the left a dark line. I repeat there is no style applied.

Have you zoomed in and measured the values?

Also, saving as JPEG is lossy, and will add artifacts.

You haven't told us what version you're using now.

And have you zoomed in and measured the values on the actual image? (not a lossy JPEG version that has added compression artifacts)

Your image shows JPEG compression losses, but no black line, and no white line. I think you're just seeing display artifacts or an optical illusion because of the contrasting colors.
