I'm pretty certain I attempted ctrl+alt+f7 when I saw this. I feel
like this might be something more sinister

That sounds like the bug I have since months: Press Ctlr+Alt+F7 to switch
to the correct virtual terminal to get the password prompt.

Perhaps you may want to leave a comment there.

I have tried this several times from a fresh install (Tumbleweed ISO)
and after upgrading from Leap. In both cases, I have an encrypted LVM
volume that contains system-root, system-home and swap.

The machine boots correctly to GRUB but gets stuck at what seems to be
plymouth (I think? - it's the loader showing the Tumbleweed
background). Usually at this stage I would get a prompt for my
password to decrypt the drive but that simply never shows up. I
noticed that for a split second I get the error message
"sed_opal:OPAL: Error on step function 0 with error 16386: Unknown

then try to boot adding
nosplash plymouth.enabled=0

it normally will allow you to boot in text mode, and then certainly have to
passphrase dialog box to unlock your encrypted things.

At least it is working here at 100%.

Long time ago I've removed all plymouth related packages, it was causing too
much trouble on my Dell Precision M7510 (hidpi).

the dracut shell you see, appear after the timeout of passphrase prompt.
so it is quite normal.
