Yes, but it has the exact same issue. We just weren't aware of it before the
move made us look at the icons.

That's actually worse.
Let me quote the Facebook brand guidelines:
"Don’t modify Facebook brand assets in any way"
"Don't use trademarks, names, domain names, logos or other content that
imitates or could be confused with Facebook"
"Don't use any icons, images or trademarks to represent Facebook other than
what is found on this resource center"
(https://en.facebookbrand.com/guidelines/brand, "Don'ts" section)
I would expect the guidelines for the other logos to be the same.
