I cannot reproduce with the provided steps, the bookmark takes the icon on first load.
Did you try in safe mode?

do you have "remember my browsing and download history" unticked?

it happens every time i try to add or edit an address that redirects. looking at the exported bookmark shows no favicon location.

Nope, comment 0 didn't point that out as a requirement.

So, favicons in general are considered part of history, but for bookmarks we should be allowing bypassing a disabled history. But it's possible the bypass is bogus in case of redirects. This is what should be verified.
