In fact blue on a blue background will be insivisible in the default title bar.

Moreover, another bug was happening: bug #38193

Using 256 colors in terminal/WeeChat solves the problem.

I tried with your string (in devel version), and the topic displays fine.
If you have other info to give me in order to reproduce the problem, please tell me.
Or maybe try to set such topic on a channel, and I'll join this channel to check if it's OK for me (please contact me on freenode #weechat if needed).

http://www.weechat.org/files/doc/stable/weechat_user.en.html --> 3.8.2. Color codes

Code 02 stands there for darkblue. I try this "/topic C02(C01testC02)" and the open bracket is absent. I try "/topic C02(C05testC02)" and both brackets are absent.

Code 02 is bold in IRC.

I tried to use bold in a topic, with command:

And the topic just displays fine, so it works for me.

I tried with option irc.look.topic_strip_colors on/off, both values are OK.

I tried with code 03 (which is for a color number), works fine too.

Can you give me an example of topic or command you do, that would cause problems?
