My suspicion is that Chrome sees that the URL for the callouts does not match the URL for the local wikis, and thinks that the images must be ads - and so blocks them. No other browsers block them, and even Chrome doesn't block them when I'm in my farm wiki.

You are saying you see the images when you access the exact same URL from Firefox or Safari, but not when you access it from Chrome? Start with your Chrome configuration, remove all extensions, plug-ins, add-ons, and so on, and see if one of them is blocking you. If that doesn’t do it, start up Chrome with a completely fresh profile.
