 Thank you again @igorradovanov for opening this ticket, which was
 discussed today during the accessibility team's bug-scrub.

 We monitored the entire creation process of the About Page: for what is
 worth, I also asked myself your same question.
 It's really important to add alt texts to images, but not all images need
 an alt description. In this case, there is no information in the images
 that isn't already conveyed in the surrounding text, so these images are
 decorative and, as such, the alt text must be present, but empty.

 As this is not a bug, I'm closing this ticket as invalid.
