For Baofeng UV-5xx these "LED colors" indicates not "LED colors" but "screen LED colors" because radio have inicative LED too and it is not corresponding to this settings.

Be aware: for other radios it may be a LED colors. May be it is needed to check a radio model before menu forming?

This is a tough decision that has to be made when creating a driver for radios like these. Sometimes the radio's internal menu calls it one thing, the factory software calls it something else and the feature is known to radio users by yet a third name.

They are called "LED" in CHIRP because that is what the menus of the radio calls them. Menu 29(WT-LED), menu 30(TX-LED) and menu 31(RX-LED).
