comment How do I prevent GDM from running at boot on Ubuntu?
I have concerns about this question, in that the title ask an entirely different question to the real question in the body of the question! (Both are answered below). This isn't good for anyone searching later. Please update the title.

i.e. this answer is an absolutely correct answer to the question in the title. It just won't help the original poster get rid of X.

Yes they do. What they don't do is use the runlevel to determine what software to use. All of 2-5 are configured to be exactly the same by default, so that you can use them yourself if you want.
