After update to the WordPress 5.4 I have an unexpected favicon (it is a blue WordPress logo). In the old WordPress 5.3.2 it does not appear! I have not set the favicon, and want to be without favicon.

To disable the default favicon handling you add a blank icon to the root directory, upload a blank site icon or hook into do_faviconico to exit early.
