It defintely passes -f through to compadd, so you're going to have to
be a bit more specific.  However, there are likely to be two combined
effects at work here.

(1) File type coloring is applied only to files that can be examined
with stat(2), unless you have some pattern-match colorings defined.

(2) _multi_parts treats each "component" of the string it breaks up as
an independent match, so it passes the prefix from the line to compadd
using -P rather than -W.

The result is that _multi_parts can only apply file coloring in cases
where there is no path prefix, i.e., files in the current directory.

Which, IIRC, is why _path_files exists in the first place.
