If I'm understanding your explanation, this is working as designed.

The only "splash" screen I'm aware of prior to plymouth graphical boot
was the bootloader menu.  In older Fedora releases, the grub bootloader
screen was always presented.  That behavior was changed (can't find the
feature page link at the moment).  To access the grub menu during boot,
you must press (and hold) <Shift> during boot.  This behavior can be
changed in /etc/grub.conf.

What information is in your grub.conf now?
