The "extra" colors are used in some graphic(s) in the template that uses an 
'indexed color' model instead of a full true color palette.  This could be a 
logo on a master page, icons on reference pages, etc.

If the output is to be grayscale and one spot color, replace any images with 
grayscale equivalents if at all possible.  Or get true color versions of the 
images, which do not add items to Frame's color catalog.

Once you have replaced the images, you either will not see the extra color 
definitions, or can readily deleted those not wanted in the production version 
of the template.
