You should play with randomseed, the starting color (here white) and the
randomization amplitude (1,1,1).  You mileage may vary.

\starttext

\startMPcode
for i=0 upto 3 :
for j=0 upto 3 :
draw unitsquare scaled 4cm shifted (4*i*cm,4*j*cm) ;
endfor ;
endfor ;
for i=0 upto 4 :
for j=0 upto 4 :
label.llft(char(i*5+j+ASCII "A"), (4*i*cm,4*j*cm))
withcolor white randomized (1,1,1) ;
endfor ;
endfor ;
\stopMPcode

Shouldn’t \spaceddigits use the separator as defined by \setdigitmode and
\setdigitorder?

Use char and ASCII.
