Note that the included screen shot was from an xrdp/xvnc session but the same bug is present in a local Gnome session.

Hello, thank you for reporting.
I tried to reproduce the issue, for me all is OK. Could you provide the result of "rpm -qa | grep almalinux"?

$ rpm -qa | grep almalinux

The almalimux install is based on almalinux-deploy execution on 1 January, transitioning from a fully current CentOS 8.5 install.

I found the root cause, and it's not almalinux per se.

It's an interaction with a user-installed gnome theme (Pacific-Blue). stracing the gnome-control-center execution, I found it was opening a the fedora svg in the theme's user icon repository (~/.icons/Pacific-Blue/scalable/apps). Switching to a default (non-user) theme (adwaita) restored the correct logo.

I don't know why the user theme was overriding the control center's usual logo selection, but the fix action is to not use old user themes. AFAIK, this can be closed.
