Chromatic aberration is the separation of colours from white light as it passes through lenses. It is caused by the different colours having different speeds as they go through glass. But when reflecting from a mirror, the light does not go through any glass and so the colour do not travell at different speeds and don't get separated. Mirrors ( at least front surface mirrors ) do not have chromatic aberration as a problem.
