Indicate when a Style is from an external library

Hi - I am several UI kits based on a core shared library. The UI Kits use a component from the Core library and then apply the relevant style. (side note - Themer doesn’t work for our use case unfortunately, hence the UI Kits)

It would be very helpful if Figma showed when a style came from a shared library (not defined in the current file). I would expect this to look like when the Main Component exists in a different file.

In this screenshot, purple is defined in the current file. Red is from a shared library.

However, when Red is selected it displays the same as a local defined style.
