  • The type is shown by "Type" colunm and the “Type"is type of the current item, not the type of attachments of the current item.  The type of item in the Custom List is only an item, not the document. So the “Type” will show the same icon, no matter whether you have uploaded attachments to the item.
    And in case of document libraries, item is "document" so it show "type" of that document.
