No, unless the DM itself exits with an error code, you won't get a
getty. As I noted on the bug, I've already spoken to upstream GDM guys
about this and they are keen to support this mode of operation. I
suspect the KDM and others will likely agree to support this mode too in
the future, but it won't be something we can use for mga2 sadly.

Well all you really need to verify is that plymouthd process has exited.
