No icons for custom document content types in SharePoint Online modern site

according to the article: Create or customize a content type - SharePoint in Microsoft 365 | Microsoft Learn it seems that adding a custom document content type recognizes the type of document and displays the icon in the New item menu.

Anyways, raise support ticket with Microsoft directly and report this bug: Get M365 support - online support
