Question

When a hot 20-something colleague comments about the “hot 30- and 40-year olds” to me (40-something), is it an idea they’re trying to plant in my head, that they’re game for someone older like me?

No man, it doesn't.
It's just a fact that a lot of people (more women than men) look good for their age due to either good genetics or upkeep or both.
Look up erbium laser, ladies.

The important word is "colleague"

Meaning someone at work.
OP: gay or lesbian,go for it.
OP:if you are a woman and it's a younger guy then go ahead as you'll be applauded and be the envy of your female colleagues.
OP:if you are a man,ignore this younger woman. Perhaps you'll go out on a date and she won't like you,or maybe you'll flirt back and then you'll be hauled up to HR for sexual harassment,be fired and labelled a creepy pervert. Then, be unable to find work for a very long time.

A 40 something who doesn't know how to navigate this isn't secure enough to be trusted with the well being of a 20 something.

This is at work. Keep it in your pants until you can be certain you're not making her workplace uncomfortable with your supposed interest.
