Why do you use en dash?  Does Firefox, etc. use en dash, or is it simply
your own local customization?

Regarding the "•" for modified files, I have seen some programs add such
a marker (more often "*", IME).  But I checked LibreOffice and it does
not do that.  I think it would be useful to check if there are any other
text editors that use such a marker.

Indeed, I see the same behavior in "emacs -Q" when I have two frames.

Maybe this could warrant a wishlist level bug report.
