Square Icons?

So I just started flashing custom roms on my Mi A1.
To much of my surprise, square is the default icon shape.
This is the case with 3 of the roms that I tried: AOSP-CAF, Carbon ROM and Cardinal AOSP.
Are square icons the new "thing" now? Since when? Am I that out of touch with android development :D

Is it really the default option though? Or are they modifications added in by developers?

Thank you very much.
