myfield = models.BooleanField(format_html('<i class="fa-regular fa-hourglass-half"</i>'))

generated HTML

<label class="vCheckboxLabel" for="id_myfield">&lt;i class=&quot;fa-regular fa-hourglass-half&quot;&gt;&lt;/i&gt;</label>

The issue only occurs for change_form.html. In other words, change_list.html handles this case well.

In your example you're setting verbose_name on the myfield field. It looks like it's meant to be a string; the Verbose field names documentation implies that.

In other words, change_list.html handles this case well.

That's probably accidental. If you want a custom field label in the admin change form, you're better off customizing the ModelAdmin.form:

from django.contrib import admin
from django.forms.models import ModelForm

class MyModelForm(ModelForm):
    def __init__(self, *args, **kwargs):
        super().__init__(*args, **kwargs)
        self.fields['myfield'].label = format_html(
            '<i class="fa-regular fa-hourglass-half"></i>'

class MyModelAdmin(admin.ModelAdmin):
    form = MyModelForm
