Yes, in this case, the source code is under GPL, but the copyright owner
said nothing about content on webpages.

Terms of use only require "the OSI-approved license(for Source Code) or
such other licensing arrangements that may beapproved by OSTG as
applicable to such Content." AFAIU, it doesn't require the license for
icons on webpages should be under the same license of the software.

Yes, I also have the impression that it will be fine to use the artwork.
But it's only an impression. IMO, we shouldn't rely on impression.
