That makes things much easier! Was that F29 server a clean install or
did you upgrade it from a previous version?
The F29 server was upgraded from F28 server. But I also used to run
grub2-mkconfig on that computer often, which is not normal. The normal
case on Fedora 29 and older is grubby updates the grub.cfg, and
grub2-mkconfig is never used. And grubby just does copy paste. So it
seems to me as very likely anyone who has never manually run
grub2-mkconfig has the linuxefi/linux16 and initrdefi/initrd16
commands still in their grub.cfg.
Fedora 29/30/Rawhide install media all have a grub.cfg that uses
linuxefi/initrdefi (BIOS systems use isolinux bootloader); but I'm
pretty sure this grub.cfg is not created by grub2-mkconfig.
A clean install of Fedora 29 Workstation, only linux and initrd are in
the grub.cfg and I know that one is created by grub2-mkconfig.
