I thought I heard somewhere that both statues are supposed to be images of Libertas, who is neither a French nor USian goddess.
Maybe the replacement suggestion is meant to be her rather than the statue of her? Or you could choose to see it that way.
(I do see U+1F5FD is explicitly listed as the statue, but we don't have to acknowledge that).
