Bug#649717: Strange wording in package description

Package: gnome-icon-theme-symbolic
Version: 3.2.1-1
Severity: wishlist
X-Debbugs-CC: debian-l10n-english@lists.debian.org

Dear Maintainers,
translating the package description (1) to German I found that the wording is

Description: GNOME Desktop icon theme (symbolic icons)
 This package contains the default icon theme used by the GNOME desktop.
 The icons are used in the panel menu, and in nautilus and other
 applications, to represent the different applications, files,
 directories, and devices.
 This package contains symbolic icons for the default GNOME icon theme.

There are two sentences regarding the content and I don't see how they fit
together. And I don't understand the difference between icons and symbolic
icons. Icons are symbols and thus they are symbolic. Did I miss something?
Is it a theme named Symbolic? If yes, it does not come from (2).

Kind regards
