so copper can not on their own do palette changes? so 68000 also must be involved?
No, CPU or Copper can change content of any (Copper with some restrictions CDANG and OCS vs ECS+ differences) register also color registers - CPU only need to construct copper list and point copper to copper list rest is performed independently, additionally Copper and Blitter can be linked (Blitter modify Copper list which control Blitter)

As i said previously - some of HW functionality already available in Amiga make Amiga developers more "lazy"
