This is something you'll have to bring up with the individual sites.

Those that showcase the unicorn are because the moderators haven't picked a question from the available list.

Moderators, when viewing the About page, will see a link to "edit question". By editing, they are picking and by picking they are showing it off.

Those that are showing less than sunshine for the example, probably could pick a better question to highlight.
