The option in "Options \ Appearance \ Document Tabs \ Same background color for files from the same project" is checked.

I have something very similar and don't believe it is the same as 249510.

As you can see from the attachment:

I have 7 projects open.
The top 2 grey files are from 2 different projects.
The middle grey file is from a 3rd project.
The bottom row of files are all from a 4th project.

I use Windows 7x64.
I am using the "Metal" look and feel.

Works fine on my side for NB 8.2 and Dev - Windows 7 64bit, JDK 8u131/9, Windows/Metal LaF. Tabs for files of the first 9 projects have colored backgrounds.

Could you please share the setup/steps for which the coloring doesn't work at all or just partially? Also please provide the NetBeans logfile:
