I found that I should put "-keeptty" to the startup options of xorg in
sddm.conf (by looking at Xorg.0.log). It looks like this was changed by
either Gentoo or Xorg/SDDM/Plasma maintainers due to an incompatibility
to systems not using systemd.

After reboot it worked as intended.

With this option enabled on non-systemd systems, this leaves you with
an unusable box in case Xorg doesn't start because the tty will
then be blocked - leaving you with only the options: hard-reboot or
ssh into the box.
