Since version 3.0.0. Astra theme comes with the Header Footer Builder already included. If you decided to switch from the legacy (old) header to the Header Builder, the location of your Site Icon settings is slightly different.

To locate the Site Icon settings when using Header Builder navigate to Appearance > Customize > Header Builder and add the “Site Identity & Logo” element to your header. Click on the element to open the settings. Within these settings, you will also be able to set your Site Icon. Check more details in the related article.
