That's the basic expectation from the cross..
Buff laces are gold laces, with dominant white added which changed the black lacing to white. DW has no/little effect on gold/red pigments that is how they get to be "buff laced".
This is essentially a cross with a black chicken... basically black is dominant, now with DW changing black to white= mostly whitish chickens.
now with blue being in the mix, that is a little unusual cross, however blue is sometimes added to a line of solid white chickens to make for a cleaner, crispier white- blue dilutes black also, so..
however both DW and blue won't have much effect on any buff color that shows up.. making some birds look off white or extremely pale buff. Flecks/little spots may show up.
None of them will grow up 'darker'.
if you breed the crosses together, you will see a very wide range of colors patterns. gold lace, buff lace, blue laced gold, "blue buff lace"(lacing probably will be variable though), some solid whites, many off-white/light buff, blue, blue-buff, etc.
