Display colors in a table/report

Is there a way to add color coding inside of a table, such that certain cells could display a color coded value?

One use case: We want a table on the C360 that shows key contacts at the customer. We have a few checkboxes that are powered by (and feed) other data in our SFDC instance, and display whether someone is a POC, DM, User, etc.

It's visually tough to gather who does what when the field simply displays "true" or "false" as text.

I would like to have anything that's true display as Green, for instance. When setting up Custom Colors it still did not make any updates to the tables.

Can we allow tables to display color coding?

Good question.  As you found, I don't think that the color settings apply in this context.  Once upon a time you could work around this sort of thing by putting html code in the field value....but that sort of thing is fragile as we are forever having to fight against unknown html to avoid cross-site scripting issues.
