It could but it doesn't in 13.1 because it's broken. So plymouth gets
disabled if root is encrypted and the initrd prompts in text mode.

FWIW, I'm using an encrypted /home partition (not root), and things work
fine with plymouth. And I feel it'd be a regression to go back to asking
the passphrase in a console.

Yes, it works during normal boot *usually*. I got at least one report
where the password prompt didn't work during boot. I couldn't reproduce
it though. In initrd it was pretty much 100% reproducible though, so for
encrypted root plymouth is disabled in 13.1.
