I recently added a 3rd screen to my setup (a laptop and 2 external screen, one on
each side) and since every single application or window from that application opens
in full screen. It was not behaving like this when I had only dual head. Is this
normal or is there some configuration to do which I missed?

Or could it be a bug eventually?
You need to describe your situation a bit more to add your video card, driver in use,
and desktop.  The answer may be different depending on your environment.

Also, when you say "full screen" to you mean it opens fully in one of the 3 screens
or does the application open in a window that spans all screens?

oops, sorry I didn't think about that. So the video card is a Intel® HD Graphics
5500 (Broadwell GT2) on a Thinkpad X1 carbon using GNOME. Not sure which drivers
are running or how to find out.
Then full screen is full screen on one screen only and actually on the screen with
the top "menu" bar because that is very the apps open when launching from the side
dock or elsewhere actually. Screen resoltion is 2560x1440 so there is enough space
to open nautilus or thunderbird not fullscreen.

Anything else which could help?

I see.  Well I just started Gnome in a Virtual Box VM after giving it 3 screens.  I
do not see what you're seeing.  Since this is a VM I can only run Gnome Xorg and not
Wayland.  Do you know which you are running?

Also, the applications are starting at the size when they were last closed.  So, if I
right-click on the menu bar of the app and pick Maximize it will start Maximized the
next time it is started.  If I Unmaximize it, it will then start at whatever size the
window was when it was unmaximized.  (Hope that isn't confusing)

FWIW, the sizes of my 3 screens are....

Screen 0: minimum 320 x 200, current 4936 x 1279, maximum 16384 x 16384
VGA-1 connected primary 2488x1279+0+0 (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) 0mm
x 0mm
   2488x1279     59.99*+

VGA-2 connected 1304x799+2488+0 (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) 0mm x 0mm
   1304x799      59.96*+

VGA-3 connected 1144x796+3792+0 (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) 0mm x 0mm
   1144x796      59.95*+


yes I am running Wayland and constantly resize each application which starts in fullscreen because it takes all the screen space while I'm happy to have 3/4 apps visible on my screen.

Screen sizes are:
Screen 0: minimum 320 x 200, current 5040 x 1920, maximum 8192 x 8192
XWAYLAND0 connected 2560x1440+1280+237 (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) 310mm x 170mm

Thank you.
