I just tested and I can both boot into run level 3 by simply adding `3'
to kernel parameters in bootloader and switch to run level 3 from
runlevel 5 by using "init 3". In the latter case it indeed does not
switch to tty with text mode login prompt, you need manually do Alt-F1.

Of course "systemctl set-default" and reboot is always
an option.

So you need to be more precise what exactly you do and how you try to
