I don't have that issue with kali-themes-common 2021.2.1
/usr/share/themes/Kali-Light/gtk-3.0/assets should be a symbolic link to the dark theme assets, so it should have the exact same files
Try reinstalling kali-themes-common and see if it get fixed 'sudo apt reinstall kali-themes-common'

Reinstalling the package indeed do resolve the issue, but I've try on a fresh install on a VM with the last ISO (kali-linux-2021.1) and during the update of the kali-themes-common the /usr/share/themes/Kali-Light/gtk-3.0/assets folder is reported as a regular directory (not as a broken symlink) ( but have a weird size 20k) and is empty. I don't understand what is happening during the update.

At some point I do think I broke that link while updating a script. That might be the cause but it is now fixed for this new release
Thanks for reporting ;)
