I don't have those folders in my sidebar, but when I drag them from Finder into the sidebar it shows them with right icon. You didn't mention how you put the folders into the sidebar, or if the icons changed on their own. Knowing this may reveal something in order to help you further.

they were in there from the beginning, but i never really noticed the icons, and one day i looked on another mac, and i saw that mine didn't have them.
