It's a hub...what's it matter if it has disc brake capability? Center or 6 bolt- either is fine. The hub doesn't care that it's laced to a rim with a brake track.
I've used Deore rims with 6 bolt for a Cdale touring bike and an older MTB in our family has Deore hubs that are designed for disc brakes, but laced to rim brake rims.

Anyways, just get a Deore hub and call it done. If you are determined to jam that square peg into a round hole, then use the tricolor since that stuff is just so damn cool. Still my favorite Shimano road group.
