No manual entry for linuxrc. Where is the documentation for linuxrc to be found?

I don't see anything on https://en.opensuse.org/SDB:Linuxrc about this, or digging into the files in .../loader/. When using installation media, NET or DVD, F3 allows to choose a mode, but how can one choose a lower than EDID-preferred mode when starting installation using Grub to load linux and initrd on machines with no boot from removable media option, or just avoid unnecessary downloading of files to be obsoleted within hours or days?

Video= works only for the ttys, not the GUI. Including sax2=1 (and sax3=1) on

In fact, you currently can't influence the video mode (without a-priory
knowledge of the driver that's going to be used).
