Personally I think it's down to the regiment.
Commanders want their men to be as protected as possible, and more lenient commissars (if the regiment had any) would turn a blind eye. That's what I believe anyway. I think the worst that could happen would be 10 licks of a whip or latrine duty.
'Oh, Commissar Kursk, I just picked up this piece of Tau armou-'
'Don't worry, Trooper Beltayn, just scratch off the insignia in place of the Eagle... and don't make a habit of it.'
