Hi, fellow LXDE user here. I've found that the default images are located in /usr/share/lxpanel/images
The ones that you need are 24x24 .png's called capslock-off.png, capslock-on.png, numlock-off.png, numlock-on.png, scrllock-off.png, scrllock-on.png.
Though I would replace them with my own images only as a last resort, as there should be a way to customize the look of the applet by editing ~/.config/lxpanel/LXDE/panels/panel. Look for a plugin with the type "kbled". Maybe someone points you toward the right setting name.

Didn't even know there was that option.

Mine doesn't seem to work well however. But I'm running Debian Jessie stable so a older version of LXDE (lxpanel 0.7.2 that I guess Debian perhaps might have updated ???). Works fine with one session, but I run two users, one for internet (restricted session, no su/sudo, restricted access to other folders etc.) and a main user (that can su etc. and where docs are stored). When I Ctrl-Alt-Fn between them the numlock doesn't correctly reflect the keyboards actual settings (panel icon is off despite keypad numlock light being on).
