(a) Icons of vertical bar: Sidebar Settings, Properties, Page, Styles, Gallery, Navigator
(b) Horizontal bar of panel Styles: Paragraph Styles, Character Styles, … Independent of the option “Sidebar icon size” these icons are always small.
(c) The icons “Icon View” and “Detailed View” in panel Gallery. Both are always large.
(d) Both horizontal bars of panel Navigator: Navigation, Previous Page, Next Page, … These icons are always small.
In order to reproduce the bug:

Changes to the icon packing on shift between small/large icons would have greater visual impact on a HiDPI screen--that is, what is changed on toggle vs. what is affected on toggle, just some remaining too small. So agree the full Sidebar UI should respond (likewise the packing on the NB) which at 1920x1080 gets too tight with the large icons.
I did note in testing this that the on toggle to one or the other sizes--the icon for dialog call out of 'More Options' for its respective deck gets dropped. The button is still active, but dialog icon is gone.
> vs. what is affected on toggle, just some remaining too small...
Well, then let's treat this as a bug. The functionality small/large icons should be applied at all places.
Remark: I would questioning the icon size in general. Don't see a good use case, and if there is one we better provide dedicated icon sets.

Well, going forward it would be useful for more than just applying the current small/large icon size toggle on the Sidebar.
Supporting enhancements like
-- using an extra large icon choice across the UI, like for just toolbars now
-- adjustable scale icons using SVG (HiDPI down through nominal 96dpi use), to return user scaling the UI (bug 101646)
-- apply fg/bg color to a monochromatic SVG icon theme (e.g. sifr)
So more than just consistent Automatic/user assignment of small/large/extra large the GUI needs a mechanism for controlling the full set of an active icon theme.
in the property panel where most icons are, they use the size from the user setting.

Dear Harald Koester,
To make sure we're focusing on the bugs that affect our users today, LibreOffice QA is asking bug reporters and confirmers to retest open, confirmed bugs which have not been touched for over a year.
There have been thousands of bug fixes and commits since anyone checked on this bug report. During that time, it's possible that the bug has been fixed, or the details of the problem have changed. We'd really appreciate your help in getting confirmation that the bug is still present.
If you have time, please do the following:

If you want to do more to help you can test to see if your issue is a REGRESSION. To do so:
1. Download and install oldest version of LibreOffice (usually 3.3 unless your bug pertains to a feature added after 3.3) from https://downloadarchive.documentfoundation.org/libreoffice/old/
2. Test your bug
3. Leave a comment with your results.
4a. If the bug was present with 3.3 - set version to 'inherited from OOo';
4b. If the bug was not present in 3.3 - add 'regression' to keyword

Thank you for helping us make LibreOffice even better for everyone!
Earliest I can reproduce is 18.104.22.168.alpha1. Prior to that, it looks like there wasn't an option to specifically adjust the sidebar icon size (only "Icon size and style" was available to be adjusted globally under Tools > Options > View).
Issue is still reproducible with daily master build.
