Thats amber not yellow. Look up the legality of colored halos. They are illegal.
It doesn't depend on the officer- it depends on the Federal laws and if the car comes from the factory meeting those laws no-one can ticket you as the car is factory legal, swapping out bulbs etc. is a different story and the halos are now the DRLs so they would only need to meet those regs (which I posted)

I'm pretty sure there is no law on the books for "halos". LEDs were technically illegal for DRLs up until a few years ago but the law was adapted, and "yellow" is legal according to MV laws,- purple is obviously not.
