Hi Ramona,

It depends on what you mean by 'material type'.  The leader and 006/007/008
control the small material type icon.  The 942$c controls the item type
icon that displays on search results.  The 952$y displays the icon in the
item record.  If you want to follow RDA and fill in the 33x fields, go to
the framework that you want to edit and add these fields.

I spoke on how I used the koha Frameworks to populate information related
to item types in two sessions at the KohaUS conference this year.  One on
what I did and the second on how to do it for yourself.
