Does the problem occur on the production server only? If yes, then the problem could be related to incorrect bundling. Please refer to our documentation.
Pay special attention to the yellow note at the end of point 8
If the problem seems to be caused by something else, then please inspect the HTML output wth a DOM inspector to check whether the background image styles are applied correctly and whether the referenced images are at the expected location.
