$XDG_DATA_DIRS/icons implies searching $XDG_DATA_HOME/icons as well, as
explained in the base dir spec.
Referencing this specification
Other specifications may reference this specification by specifying the
location of a data file as $XDG_DATA_DIRS/subdir/filename. This implies that:
* Such file should be installed to $datadir/subdir/filename with $datadir
defaulting to /usr/share.
* A user specific version of the data file may be created in
$XDG_DATA_HOME/subdir/filename, taking into account the default value for
$XDG_DATA_HOME if $XDG_DATA_HOME is not set.
* Lookups of the data file should search for ./subdir/filename relative to all
base directories specified by $XDG_DATA_HOME and $XDG_DATA_DIRS . If an
environment variable is either not set or empty, its default value as defined
by this specification should be used instead.
