No, but it is customary that they are.

4-color &1-color are the proper terminology in English also, but you must remember that when printers say "color," they mean "ink." A 1-color page, printed in black ink can have a whole range of shades of grey. A 4-color page, printed in process colors (Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, and Black) can produce the full-color pages that you see in most printed material.

The printer could clean out the press and put any color of ink in it, then all of your inside pages would be printed in that color. It just not often done. You would be charged extra for such a request—it takes some time to clean a press for an ink change.
