So its not using the accent color, have you tried changing them in Personalisation/colors?

Curious if its just showing the placeholders still, have you run windows store and checked for updates?
The installer doesn't have current or full versions of the default apps, it downloads the latest from the store after install. So maybe the icons are just placeholders until you get right ones.

Guess it depends how quickly after installing the OS that they asked, I expect there is some order to the updating process windows does, it might have been still getting windows updates and would get the store updates at some stage.
Also depends on if user was online at time.
Might also depend if they signed into store on their user account though this only applies to local accounts.

store updates don't show in windows update history, you have to look in reliability history or the store itself to see them. Guess it makes sense to have it like that but people don't know to run the store updater as most times it runs auto.
