In this paper, we make an investigation on the sum-mean-square-error (Sum-MSE) performance gain in full-duplex orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing (OFDM) systems in the presence of colored interference-plus-noise (IPN). This gain is defined as the ratio of Sum-MSE of frequency-domain least-square (LS) channel estimator to that of DFT-based LS one. The closed-form formula of the gain is derived. And, its simple upper and lower bounds are given using inequalities of matrix eigenvalues. The exact value of Sum-MSE gain depends heavily on the correlation factor of the IPN covariance matrix. More importantly, we also find that the Sum-MSE performance gain grows from 1 to <formula><tex>$N/L$</tex></formula> as the correlation factor gradually decreases from 1 to 0, where <formula><tex>$N$</tex></formula> and <formula><tex>$L$</tex></formula> denote the number of total subcarrier and the length of cyclic prefix, respectively. Also, via theoretical analysis, the exact Sum-MSE gain degenerates into 1 and <formula><tex>$N/L$</tex></formula> in two extreme scenarios: fully-correlated and white, respectively. The former 1 means there is no performance gain, while the latter <formula><tex>$N/L$</tex></formula> corresponds to the maximum Sum-MSE performance gain achievable. Numerical simulation further validates the above results. Additionally, the derived lower bound is shown to be closer to the exact value of Sum-MSE gain compared to the upper bound.
