Do you assign unique part numbers based on finish color or assign color another way?

Currently Engineering assigns a finish type (powder coat, high phosphorus) to our parts, not a color and the color is driven by our ERP system. But we are having issues with parts getting painted the incorrect color. Engineering is being asked to "Put the color on the print." but in my opinion we don't care about color. It does not affect the form, fit or function of the part and should not be assigned by the Engineer. How do other companies handle this? Please help.
