"gtk-icon-sizes" is the relevant setting. Please file a bug.

Icon themes are, independently of Xfce, a Free Desktop Org standard. It
is reasonable for a theme to depend on others. In particular hicolor can
be expected to be present, it is not a user chosen theme. So if you
don't like any icons, choose a new theme, it's as simple as that. I
don't personally like Rodent either, but that doesn't justify this kind
of critique.
