(At least) the odt file icon does not show (blank file icon in the finder and in the libreoffice window top frame) in 5.1.0 and 5.1.1.
I tried to replace with info.plist provided in those versions with the one from 5.0.5 and things went back to normal.

I have this problem (LO 188.8.131.52 on OSX "Sierra").
The issue is still there. (LO 184.108.40.206 on OSX Sierra)
Same here. (LO 220.127.116.11 on OSX Sierra)

Could you please try to reproduce it with the latest version of LibreOffice
from https://www.libreoffice.org/download/libreoffice-fresh/ ?
I have set the bug's status to 'NEEDINFO'. Please change it back to
'UNCONFIRMED' if the bug is still present in the latest version.
I can confirm. I just updated Libre to 22.214.171.124, and I'm on macOS "High Sierra" 10.13.2. Calc files show up in green upon viewing a directory for the first time, but Writer files are in white, and when I reload a directory, the Calc files are white again. Basically no change.
This bug is not only for ODF documents, with which in my machine, LO 6.0.5 has no problrm an icon is set correctly (downloaded from LO website yesterday) in High Sierra, but also for MS Office documents, which should show (as a suggestion) OASIS icons.
The MS Icons not showing is talked in the bug 67874 which in my oppinion comes ti be closely related to this other one.
Bug 106050 was labelled a duplicate of this bug (accurately!), but there was information in my bug report that might be pertinent, so I am pasting it here:
For the last several versions of 5.X, after upgrading LO, the Finder icons for all ODF files have gone blank (picture attached). This is a common enough problem that there are several discussion boards in which it has been asked and answered:
(there are more)
In the past, I could clear the icon cache in OS X, but with "Sierra" (v10.12), that area of the computer is now locked, so the workaround is no longer functional.
Steps to Reproduce:
2. Look in Finder.
Finder Icons of ODF (and any other file set to load in LO) are blank (generic Mac icons: white with folded corner).
ODF icons should appear with colour-coded icons: blue for Writer, green for Calc, etc.
User Profile Reset: No (it's not a problem within LO)
Colour-coded icons are visible in (a) the "Icon" view in Finder (rather than "List"), and (b) when my laptop is plugged into a bigger screen (i.e., my home monitor instead of the monitor on the laptop).
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10.12; rv:51.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/51.0
It keeps to be true, though that there is not and presumably have never been an icon association for the very common NS Office icons, which in other OS do and in mac os x should.
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:
Test to see if the bug is still present with the latest version of LibreOffice from https://www.libreoffice.org/download/
If the bug is present, please leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.
If the bug is NOT present, please set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED-WORKSFORME and leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.
Please DO NOT
Update the version field
Reply via email (please reply directly on the bug tracker)
Set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED - FIXED (this status has a particular meaning that is not
appropriate in this case)
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 http://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

This is still present, given that the Info.plist hasn't been touched
Still a problem in Version 126.96.36.199 only shows up in list or 3 pane view. Icon view is ok.
Just upgraded to 6.3.5 from 6.0.7 . Previously no problems with write, ODS, ODT or XLS files having icons in the Finder (Mac). Now the XLS file type shows up as the blank icon. cheers. MacOS 10.11.3
This bug has been around in various forms for at least 4 years I don't see why this is a "new" bug.
Having looked at various bug reports on this, the latest comments seem to be about blank MS document icons which would be covered by bug 67874
How icons are rendered can also be impacted by icon preview being on (e.g., bug 86101)
So is this still really a distinct problem?
I had a look at the Info.plist in 5.1.0 and 5.0.5
5.0.5: Icons are declared on "Document types"
5.1.0: Icons are declared on "Exported Type UTIs"
7.0.0: Icons are still declared on "Exported Type UTIs"
MS Word also declares on "Exported Type UTIs" and "Document Types"
(.doc is on Document types, .docx is on both)
Pages also declare on both, but use UTTypeIconName for "Exported Type UTIs" (interestingly does not provide any icons for MS Word)
Reading this Stack overflow article , it seems like setting the icons on the Exported UTIs is best practice. And the current Info.plist does follow this structure as outlined by Apple 
So I'm going to close this. Please create a new bug if there's a specific issue with any icons
