I have asked Lapo and he said:

"those are fallback icons used when the theme doesn't return a folder or
a file icon.  This happened some years ago with some themes I had
installed, however I'm not sure if it's still useful these days."
(any comments?)

Btw, can you be more specific what icons can File-Roller fallback?

All icons please use git2 (2.15.2) icons style instead of Tango icons style.

To Hylke Bons: the icon is good, but I think you can do better right? ;)

I am not sure about this. It seems to me Nautilus's using 24x24 not 16x16. I
have never seen any GNOME programs has 16x16 toolbar icons before. It'd be
nice if GTK programs can take advantage of variable sized icons.
