Here are the colour swatches for BS 481 # 389 Camouflage Beige aka "RAF Hemp" together with the closest standard Munsell and RAL values.
With grateful appreciation to Ken Glass for assisting with the Munsell fractional values.

Interesting. Are you suggesting that Hemp is a close call to A6M's colour?

The current colorimetric value of extant Zero artifacts is very close to the colorimetric value of RAF Camouflage beige ("Hemp").
I am not suggesting it. The colour science confirms it! You cannot make statements that "The current paint surface appearance of the Zero artifacts is close to 5 Y 6/2" and at the same time say "That colour is not similar to RAF Camouflage Beige (Hemp)" because they are!
