NPC class is shown as warrior instead of none with just the standard green color for NPCs.

When I activate health bar class colors, borders, or icon it shows NPCs as warriors. This is a problem because the usefulness of class colors is to spot other player classes quickly.

Having NPCs showing up as warrior brown is confusing since the default UI's nameplates color NPCs without class colors and reserves it only for the player classes.

"the usefulness of class colors is to spot other player classes quickly."
I disagree. The usefulness of class colors is to know what type of abilities that class has. The game client itself returns this information for NPC characters - this is not a bug. NPCs returned as "Warrior" do only melee damage. NPCs returned as "Paladin" can cast spells.

Now, if you wish for TipTop to ignore NPCs when coloring by class, that would be a feature request.
