What are those symbols beside richlist addresses ?

When viewing one of the richlists, you may see some addresses with non-clickable symbols beside them.

These symbols merely indicate if the address has be active quite recently (within 30 days) or idle for more than a year.

Being recently active is potentially deceptive.
It could simply be Proof-of-Stake (on those coins with such income) happening on an unattended daemon wallet.
Or an otherwise idle address may have received some coins/payment from another address.

Addresses without symbols had their last activity in between those periods (more than 30 days but less than a year.)
