....and it's all clear now.
Hadn't heard of that variant...thought there were just NTSC and PAL
motherboards. I tried googling "Apple IIe international NTSC" and found

Sounds like your computer produces a 50-Hz variant of NTSC (NTSC 4.43?).
The Raspberry Pi can't do that, so you're not going to get color video on
