This is by design, see [20982]. I don't think there's any accessibility issue as normal (browser built-in) tooltips don't have connectors either.

Becky can reopen if she sees an issue, although it would be a hassle to make a connector appear in high contrast mode as we would need to use a <img> w/a src attribute instead of the background-image CSS we use now.
