From what I see, it looks like the SVG icons are just path elements and not lines/circles/etc. The new code in DP11 adds support for much more of the SVG spec. I found why lines are not working... I’ll get a PR together if it isn’t already corrected. Line 1124 had an extra “_” in _svgBoxLine that

Looking at the feather icons, it seems that “currentColor” is not being picked up as anything which makes them render blank. If I change that to “red” then some work. Ones that include “line” do not draw anything (seems like a bug since the output is blank). Most use elements other than path, so
