Here are two plants with purple rhizomes. These are both SDBs. This phenomenen  is most common in SDB and MDB plants. It is seen most clearly when the older leaves are peeled off. The colour fades with exposure to soil and sunlight, unlike Purple Based Foliage (PBF) which gets stronger with exposure to sun.
