    I found a way to reproduce this issue consistently.
    Open the attached project and right away(that's important) build player. Textures would be okay.

    Then get back to editor and select the TEST_SCRIPT object in the hierarchy. Make sure that you see T_Soldier_Helmet_Fine texture is referenced in the script's inspector. Now build the player again and you should see black texture.

    Disabling 'ProjectSettings/Editor/LoadTextureDataOnDemand' setting and restarting the editor seems to fix the issue.
