Same issue running 2018 mac mini Catalina 10.15.7 and Illustrator 2021 v25 saving to an external Solid State drive via usb c. Correct file icon missing as well.
Never had the issue before the last Adobe update.
Adobe needs to address the fact that when saving files, the default type of file is Adobe Illustrator 2020, however, when you Get iinfo on the file from the Mac, you will notice that the Application name which provides the icon is Adobe Illustrator 2021, so Perhaps this is where the issue resides?
