I like the idea of coloring them differently. For me this will give an additional way to distinguish the buttons. (Some of them have only the direction of the arrow as a difference. Which is easily overlooked.) I hope having different colors will make it easier for my brain to remember which button does what. (I can't tell you how often i clicked load symbol instead of update symbol while working on the reorganization of the official lib.)

Maybe there is a better way to communicate differences but if buttons look as similar as a lot of them currently do, adding differentiating colors might help.
