Welcome to ask.fedora! Just to check, I just swapped over to a different console and tried to log in using my regular username and the wrong password. There was a slight pause, then it told me that my login was incorrect and it went back to the beginning of the login process and asked me for my username, just as I expected. I've been using Linux for over twenty years, and I've never seen a version that asked you to enter your password a second time if it wasn't right the first time. It sounds to me as though your system is doing exactly what it should, and you've just been misinterpreting the prompt that you get after you give it the wrong password. Next time you get your password wrong, take a moment to read the new prompt, and you'll see that I'm right.
