Is the chloroplast, in any way, associated with lipids?

Cis or trans? That's what matters.

But I guess you mean metabolism, right? It provides the reductants for biosynthetic pathways in cell.

also plastoglobules are lipids found in chloroplasts that have involvement in the biosynthesis of tocopherols.
