Table card headers show colors to help you quickly see which tables are from the same kind of source.

All tables that are in import mode will not show a color.

Tables from the same DirectQuery source (blue) will show a color for tables from that same source.

My best assumption is that the red lines indicate that a query is hitting a read-only replica.

This happens to me when I directly query my SQL high availability group's secondary/read-only node.
