You can block directly on blocking mats.

That being said, if you are using something/mats that was/were NOT designed specifically for knitting, you may want to check that it is color-fast first.
Or, as you suggested place a piece of fabric over the mat to hopefully absorb any color/bleed.
Or, only block darker yarns on the mat so any absorbed color/bleed won't show.
