I'm aware of this problem.

Not yet, but that could possibly become a feature in the future.

This is what is on my todo. At least on Big Sur and newer I can use 
so-called SF Symbols of which there is a large collection provided by 
Apple. For example, xmark.seal and checkmark.seal could be used. For 
some users these symbols might display here as well: 􀇼􀇺

The SF Symbols locks look like this: 􀎠􀎤

Alternative suggestions (SF Symbols) are welcome.

That's also possible using SF Symbols if needed.
