What happens if you don't set a root password and got dropped into

You're stuck. Default settings allow to launch an unauthenticated root
shell at boot time quite easily, but it is not as convenient as regular
recovery mode. This is why I advise against not setting a root password
even if you are going to use sudo or polkit.
