At least in F12 and later, it does not, unless you force it.  X is
perfectly capable of picking a free VT, and telling you which one it
chose after it starts.

atropine:~% DISPLAY=:0 xprop -root | grep XFree86_VT
XFree86_VT(INTEGER) = 7
atropine:~% ps auwx | grep ^root.*X      
root     31802  0.2  2.0  57188 42124 tty7     Ss+  Mar29  34:22 /usr/bin/Xorg :0 -br -verbose -auth /var/run/gdm/auth-for-gdm-7sXnhu/database -nolisten tcp
