I think it is apple's attempt to make things look like there is no OF, and
the computer just boots MacOS.  If you press CMD-OPT-OF and then type boot,
the output comes out.

Have you tried changing the boot command to boot rather than mac-boot.
boot might allow the screen output to come out.

Would it hurt to have boot be the normal boot command, and then is MacOS is
selected, then run mac-boot?
