0003099: Metal cages/floodgates/etc. show up with colors backwards
In previous versions, [COLOR:a:b:c] for stones was equivalent to [TILE_COLOR:a:b:c][BUILD_COLOR:b:a:*][BASIC_COLOR:a:c] (where * would be 1 if 'a' and 'b' were equal, 0 otherwise), and [COLOR:a:b:c] for metals was equivalent to [BUILD_COLOR:a:b:c][BASIC_COLOR:a:c]. Now that both stone and metal raws are parsed by the same logic, this results in metals having the wrong BUILD_COLOR (since it's following the rules used for stones), so doors, floodgates, hatch covers, barrels, bins, and cages made of metal have the wrong colors.

For example, in the past, iron and steel floodgates were dark grey with a light grey background (0:7:1), but now they appear as light gray with a black background (7:0:0). If this was not intended, then all metals should specify both DISPLAY_COLOR and BUILD_COLOR to the same values.
No tags attached.

This bug is not related to 0002589 in any way.

I think the idea was just that they're both building display issues, but I've replaced that relationship with one to 0001332 which, being older, can function as the hub for this type of issue.

Should be sorted for next time.
