I am using the latest Windows build (21343), but this has been the case since versions released two years ago. And I have already reported this in the Feedback Hub (in fact, there are dozens of complaints about it there, made by other users).
One way I use to remove the black rectangle is to delete the thumbnail cache, then the folders icons are recreated and displayed correctly, until the black rectangles start to appear again in some folders created and changed (this happens at random).
I'm not going to commit suicide because of that, but it's annoying. And even small details are important because it shows how interested the developers are in delivering the best experience possible to users.

Thank you for sharing feedback , Windows team will investigate the issue.
You don't know that. Microsoft Windows team themselves said that they receive too many feedbacks, they can't attend to every single one of them.
many feedbacks are just pure spam, off topic or content-free, in feedback hub app.

That's interesting, I'm sure you've clean installed Windows a couple of times at least in the past 2 years duration, right? I wonder what causes that, because I work with a couple of systems and never seen it before.
I suspect a 3rd party software is the culprit. does it happen when you install Windows clean without installing any other software?

You don't know that.
that's also Not what is happening in real life.
there are lots of valid feedbacks in feedback hub, no action is being taken for them.
also the most important thing you need to remember is the time.
when someone has a problem, posting in feedback hub isn't helpful, if Microsoft ever even sees that feedback, might be months or years, the user will be in a totally different situation by then.
for problems posted in forum, user usually wants a prompt reply, in a normal expected time frame, not months or years later.
also, lots of good feedbacks are being closed due to the fact that they were submitted from older version of Windows and as those versions expire, so do the feedbacks.
I've personally seen it happen to some of my old feedbacks, no action taken about them, yet they just were closed.

it doesn't help Microsoft or Windows team if the problem is caused by a 3rd party software user installs that is either old, pirated, buggy, glitchy etc.
or if the OS files are corrupted or something has changed. there are Many situations where things can go wrong and submitting about them in feedback hub is Neither a good idea nor helpful. because Windows team can't do anything about it if it's not Windows' problem.
if it was the case, then Windows would have 0 problem by now. it's been 6 years since Windows 10 released, still making big headlines about problems affected by lots of people.
what needs to happen is that there needs to be a lot more people reviewing feedbacks in feedback hub and pay attention to all of them. get rid of the spam and useless stuff.
make it available on the web like uservoice so more people can interact with it.
until then, nope.
