My color like coal, or being in a hole.

My skin is hardcore, a steely abode.

When things turn sore, me you procure.

'Cause I remember why the dismember.

I have orange hue, you were tricked, too.

Are you:

A flight recorder, AKA Black Box

My color like coal, or being in a hole.

Black as coal, at least in name

My skin is hardcore, a steely abode.

A flight recorder is encased in a hard, steel box.

When things turn sore, me you procure.

In a flight disaster, the black box is searched for...

'Cause I remember why the dismember.

...because it records (remembers) what has happened

I have orange hue, you were tricked, too.

Despite the nickname, a "black" box is actually orange - which also explains the title "It is not what it's called" - a black box, is in fact not a black box.
