My UEFI configuration options allow me to set a timeout.  It'll show a
boot menu for so-many seconds before automatically carrying on booting
the default choice.  This is a "what to do now" choice, as opposed to
making a permanent setting.

Bill, this is the configuration controls built into the motherboard,
what people used to call BIOS settings, but often with a fancier
interface.  You get to choose your defaults, and which choices will
appear, and a timeout period.  You may even be able to put in more
useful names, such as Fedora rather than drive 0, etc.

This is all before GRUB gets involved.  When the motherboard's firmware
boots Fedora (as opposed to any other choice), that's when it hands
over to GRUB and the GRUB menu.

It's a bit of a pass-the-baton relay race.
