Well, dwm ignores MWM hints, because that is ICCCM compliant
(and they basically define wether a window should have a border
 or not, meaning a parent frame or not - but in dwm there are no
 parent frames at all).

Which version of feh do you use?

I have no problem with feh wether in floating nor in tiled mode
running feh -F <image>.png

I tried to reproduce with

arg_AT_arg1:~$ feh -v
feh version 1.3.4
