Yes, it works because you have assigned the ID of an image as an icon. 
Icons require ID numbers. The referenced control is the image, not the 
button icon.

Images can take referenced files as content. However, you can't assign a 
file reference as an icon. For example, this won't work:

   set the icon of btn 1 to "/myDisk/folder/icon.jpg"
