No, it doesn't. Has this options impact to default runlevel? I didn't find this in documentation.
Runlevel 3 is the default. If you use the xconfig command, it'll set runlevel 5 to be the default. Also if you do a graphical install and have installed either xorg-x11-server-Xorg or any package providing service(graphical-login), you will get runlevel 5. Do you meet any of these criteria?
skipx is described here:

I didn't specify xconfig in ks. It was basic installation (%packages @core), no xdm-like program wasn't installed.
The only installed tool (similar to that) is prefdm, it is part of initscripts and that package doesn't provide graphical-login.
Can you attach your kickstart file and /etc/inittab from the installed system?

When I was trying to reproduce that I finally found it was really one kickstart file with xconfig command defined.
This is not bug, anaconda did the work as defined in kickstart.
