First, I'd give the printer a press quality PDF set up to yield the
cmyk (by default) and be done with it. That's what the PDF capability
is for...

FM doesn't support Pantone colors directly... it builds an
approximation with CMYK or RGB colors, which may be why they keep
reappearing. Another posibility is that you have PNG graphic files in
the FM book, and the colors are coming from those. In either case, the
RGB definitions are not hurting anything, so you don't buy yourself
anything by struggling to delete them.

If you want to try another tactic, create a new blank file and delete
the color definitions from it. Then use the Clean Import plug-in to
delete the existing definitions.
