Colony ships are populated with whatever the largest population on the constructing planet is (assuming it's not Primitive or has some other disqualifying attribute). However, colony ships observe the colonization rules for the owning empire, so you can't (for example) colonize an Arid world as Orthin using Human colonists.

This might seem illogical, but it's to avoid the micromanagement of having to remove sub-optimal colonists from a planet to max out population. Realistically, you should have to remove the humans from the planet to take full advantage of the superior Ashdar arid habitability, and that's no fun.
Habitat domes let you live in a biome that you couldn't otherwise live in at all.
