Problems with icons in album display

Just discovered that if I go into Configure Digikam and do anything and 
save it the digikamrc General Setting Icon theme= gets blanked and I'm 
back to breeze icons on next restart despite the settings saying use 
system default. Editing it back to oxygen gets me back the icons I want.

Now my system default is oxygen so is digikam correctly detecting this 
or not, what does it check for this so I can ensure my system is set up
