Illustrator 2022 appears to have 'reworked' the Links palette and now does not include an icon next to the filename of embedded images.

The 'new' version now shows a 'link' chain icon. In previous versions the icon symbolizing an embedded graphic was very helpful.

Seemingly now, the system is reversed as I now see an icon for a linked image instead of an icon for embedded. Yes, now we can see the image/link is embedded by either mousing over the filename or by reading the info below but the icon was, by far, a superior way to quickly notice if a link was in fact linked or embedded into our files. This was not broken, why was it altered? Is there a way to show this icon again? Setting perhaps?

No, there's no way to change it. It was a decision by the development team.

I would make a post on uservoice. There is this one already, but another with a full request would be more useful:
