The kernel parameters are (or should be) shown; it's just that they're converted to UTF-16 when you create the entry and then shown in two-character form, with "." characters between entries, when you use efibootmgr -v.

I don't know why this was relevant, but: In /boot/grub2/grub.cfg I needed to change the parameter resume=/dev/sda1 (the current Tumbleweed way) to resume=/dev/disk/by-uuid/[put your own UUID here for sda1] as used in Leap. And after that the boot finished successfully.

Just to provide more information to complete the answer. The motherboard has come back from RMA. They fixed it by simply clearing the CMOS. It's something I had read, and it was the only thing I didn't do. Clear the CMOS. So clearing the CMOS (by extracting the battery for 10+ minutes or bridging the adequate jumper) can definitely solve a problem like this ...
