Used to be able to buy paint grenades with explosive charges in the US. The M69 or something similar, I recall. The atf shut that down pretty quick.

I remember in the old days, at least once a month someone would show up with a military surplus smoke bomb (landing zone signals, etc)...... and it would start a fire.

That scene of the projectile going through six sheets of Styrofoam and detonating is just plain scary. I wouldn't want to get hit with some of these things. Hella cool though....

Might as well just wear riot gear and use simunition if you're going to these lengths for realism

Explosives and impact fusing? Cool and all, but pretty much zero fields will let you use something like that.
Worse, explosives shooting solid plastic pellets is dangerously close to an actual anti-personnel grenade.
And last, just from an objective use standpoint, the paint grenades still just try to throw liquid paint. No matter how it's projected- unless through, like, nozzles or something- it's going to severely limit the "blast radius". Even in that video, the paint was pretty well misted within ten diameters of the grenade body-which means the blast radius (as in, leaving a visible mark) might be two feet, three at the outside.
All that said, I have to admit I'd love to have a 40mm style grenade launcher, that could fire accurately-timed detonate-in-flight grenades. I'm not sure I'd want to play against one, but they'd sure make for an exciting game or two.
