With companies these days emphasizing WCAG compliancy, seemingly trivial colour changes can be make-or-break for that 'tick' you require. Getting it right the first time around will also help reduce tech debt as you won't need to return to the work (which in my experience rarely occurs and is poorly prioritised) somewhere down the track .

These issues also seem to occur often due to poor grooming or inadequate estimates on stories prior to the sprint which results in the tasks not being able to start straight away, or finish too early. Focusing on these 'other' aspects of the story will help mitigate both these issues, and make you a better developer as a whole, as you can far more reliably understand, estimate, and create the work which meets the all goals of the product owner.
