The mini window will reflect the procedural's color if it is used in such a fashion. You certainly would agree that a black texture on a black background appears invisible. That's why you can change the color. Moving around in the window on the other hand is pretty useless, I think that too. The window is too small and since it offers no reference to the coordinates it currently displays, you still have to rely on the material preview, VIPER or FPrime. Anyway, endless arrays of dots or bricks look all the same no matter if you are at the origin or miles in space...
