About the links from the nwbib classification: I think omitting these only makes sense from a cataloger perspective. From a user perspective, why would I get the links for one kind of subject, but not for the other. Also, the two linked examples show that these links allows topics to be discovered that wouldn't be without these links (nwbib classification with values that are not in the subjects, but part of topics).
About the icon: I tried a lot of icons, and I think the one now deployed makes most sense in two ways: as an ellipsis (...) it represents the parts of the linked topics that are not displayed in the details view, and the dots contained in a little box can also represent the topic (subject chain) itself. Finally with its low height, it's not too visually dominant (in detail views with many subjects).
I suggest leaving them out for now and asking stakeholders whether they would like to have them.
