Photoshop Blend Brush Question Alt versus I

I have a question about the Blend Brushes in Photoshop. Some brushes, as an example, Kyle's Real Oils - 01, while pressing and holding Alt to select a foreground color, pull up the eyedropper tool like the regular brush tool does and works fine. Others, like Kyle's Paintbox - Gouache Thick, when you press and hold Alt, instead of the eyedropper tool it pulls up a target reticle and as far as I can tell, you cannot select a color with it and in fact I have no idea what it's purpose is and I haven't successfully found an answer for what it's supposed to do. These are both blending brushes included in the modern Creative Cloud subscription. Is there a way to disable the target or a way to modify the brush so Alt pulls up the eyedropper instead of the target? I could probably just use I, but I use a macropad with my Cintiq and I only have so many keys! I need Alt a lot more. I took a bad picture of my screen with my phone to show what I mean. Thank you!

Click the down arrow to the right of the current brush load thumbnail and turn on Load Solid Colors Only. I think that will do what you want, right? It will still appear as a target icon, but only sample a solid color.
