There are icons missing even with elementary-xfce properly used. That's
a known issue, documented in the package description of
elementary-xfce-icon-theme, and the reason I suggested to package
elementary icon theme.
One way to check if elementary-xfce is in use is to look at the icon for
"Save" and "Save as" - if they appear as an arrow inside a box, then
elementary-xfce is in use, but if they appear as a bare arrow then the
default GTK icon is used instead.
If in your setup default GTK icons (or some other icon set) is used,
then I suspect that the cause is related to how your environment
resolved which GTK icon theme to use - i.e. that your environment does
not use XDG standards for resolving icon theme:

Why do you think some libraries are missing? If it is the icons failing
to show, then I think it is an issue tied to your Qt environment - see

I don't know the bug you are referring to. When you know about concrete
info, it is quite helpful if you can locate and share a URL.
Grub-customizer sounds like a tool tied to the environment setup, and if
my guess is correct then that supports my point above.

I highly doubt that the solution is to rewrite the whole application, no
matter which issue it is you are talking about here...

Bullseye is frozen, so now is a great time to start using it even for
