Usually the top arrow is solid black, for grabbing and moving, and the second arrow is white for grabbing and moving photos inside a picture box for example. Did they get switched around in 2022 InDesign? Now the grab arrow is white, and the move objects inside is black? Am I nuts?
I am the one who is always using the lightest UI.

"but are you guys not talking to each other?"
We guys here are no Adobe employees. Just users.
I would write a bug report at Illustrator UserVoice for changing the icons in Illustrator as well:
With PhotoShop I'd do the same, but this is a bit odd. PhotoShop is not listed here:
When I go to:
I get an error:
Error 404: Account has been deleted
"This UserVoice instance is no longer available."
Ah, found it, bug reporting for PhotoShop can be done here:

You're not crazy. I noticed that too. Automatically I select the solid black arrow (with kind of an outline) as the selection tool. I find it annoying to have to get used to this change now. Just checked it in Illustrator and there it's still ''the old'' way.
What's amazing to me is the amount of people defending Adobe as if its the right thing to do to have In Design, Photoshop and Illustrator be different for the primary control function. It's a simple overs sight and mistake that needs to be addressed. There was zero reason to change it in the first place since it benefits no one.
my first reaction was: the switch of the icons ( no switch of functionality! ) must be a bug.
But then I changed my mind. After someone noted that the core idea behind the icons is "filled" vs "hollow" and not "black" vs "white". I have no issue at all with that decision. Only hope, that Illustrator and PhotoShop will follow suit soon.
