Adding Jay, Heiko to CC as this could arguably considered a UX issue - why should Windows be privileged in this point ?

Windows isn't privileged. Insert -> Shape like *any* other menu depends on the "Icons in menus" setting (in the options dialog under LibreOffice > View). Under macOS it defaults to hide, and under Windows it defaults to show. That's it. What you're asking here is to introduce an inconsistency, so some menus will follow that setting, and the other ones not.

Just out of interest - why is the default set to show on Windows, and hide on OSX ?

Unfortunately, and perhaps I'm a tad blind, I don't see any such setting under "View" on OSX, at least not in master 5400 alpha

Sorry, my bad, was looking in wrong place, found it, thanks !

So maybe we could close this as INVALID ?

The user interface guidelines for icons in menus on OSX and Gnome 3 is to not show them, while for Windows and KDe is to show them. :D
