I think the last time these emoticons were updated was 2003? 2004? I'm not saying we need some weird once a year update with poo emojis, but certainly there are better options almost 13, 14 years later.
You mean the default delivered smilies?
You can install every smiley you like via acp, and from 3.2, you can also use emoticons. Maybe you need a mobile device which has emoji keyboard by default or a special virtual keyboard for your desktop or notebook
