With the boot time so reduced, you don't have time to display it. Last time I saw it , disappeared in half a second!
Systemd is faster but with an old system there is anything up to 8 secs delay, with a completely blank black screen, before the desktop comes up.

If this happens to anyone new they would have a big fright.
