Interesting. :)

I'd display whatever is used to sample the image. I tried to figure out
whether the colorpicker is really using a square or a circle to sample
the color information and it occured to me that it really uses all
pixels within the square not just those within a virtual circle
contained in the square.

I guess I don't really understand your question. Do you want to know
whether it makes sense to display the shape actually used for sampling
or whether to use a circle instead of a square?
I'd say: Make the shape configurable and always display the correct one
in the image.
