Why is there an icon in my GNOME toggle buttons?

I have a weird thing happening, where an icon is being displayed inside my toggle buttons since a while and I don’t know what I did to make that happen. What kind of functionality is this? Where can I disable it?

Toggle button with icon inside


What theme are you using? Adwaita hides switch icons. It looks like your theme makes the icon visible, but your icon theme doesn’t provide images for “switch-on” and “switch-off”.

Thanks for your response! I’m using the icon theme “Breeze” and Adwaita for applications and cursors.
What kind of Icon would be displayed in there? Is it like for special input methods?

It’s the standard on/off (I/O) icon typically used in electronics or the actual words.

Ok, thanks a lot folks!
