    Without getting all scientific, it has to do with the frequency of the light being produced and how it is filtered by the red plastic lens.
    Yes that's what happens. With LED's the red lens blocks, or absorbs part of the light, but if the bulb is red, the lens doesn't filter out that spectrum of light.. You can google it for a better explanation.
