I have found that I have installed a package called "boot-icons".

"Display boot progress using graphical icons
This Package modifies the boot progress to show small graphics
in the non-scrolling area of the screen (at the top, next to
the Linux penguin).

For this to work, it needs kernel-level framebuffer support."

Not sure why I don't have a "non-scrolling area"...
