How is cover art matched to the loved tracks?

I’m asking because I noticed some discrepancies in the list of my loved tracks. For example, for the recording, which is a live version from “And All That Could Have Been” album, the cover art of “Pretty Hate Machine” is shown, i.e. one of the original studio album.

A stranger example is the recording Recording “Le soleil est près de moi” by Air - MusicBrainz, for which no cover art is displayed at all.

When I went to examine the release with missing artwork, it turned out to be - a live bootleg that features a different recording.

How does matching cover art (or, maybe more generally, releases) work for loved tracks?
