Do you see this slight color change anywhere else? Example; I'm working on adjusting colors on a CMYK document to get them as close as possible to a separate RGB document. We use a third party color picker to get the color value off the original RGB, and then when we put that into Illustrator CMYK, AI then displays a noticeably different color (not the typical RGB -> CMYK shift) and different number color values. We've spent hours going over the color profiles within AI and matching them between all the programs and other management settings that might be contributing. We only see this inconsistency with AI, very frustrating to type in a CMYK value, and then have it change it the values. We now have to sit and play the toggle game on the palette sliders to correct it. I'm willing to be told I'm totally missing something, but colors changing unexpectedly is a major problem for software like this...
