The default setting is to use 3D, where the borders are determined by
the topcolor and bottomcolor (labelled in the inspector as inset and
outset bevels.) The regular bordercolor is only used if the 3D setting
is turned off. So to get what you want, fiddle with the two bevels.

I've never seen that happen when the RGB values are the same. Maybe one
object has a slight transparency set?
