I've used Mac before and it prompts to either close the apps currently open or save the state and auto return when booted up, and it actually does saves the state of the application.

How do I go about it with my Fedora 28 on Version 3.28.2?

From the version 3.28.2 I can only guess that you are using the GNOME session. In this case, this feature has once existed but has been discontinued. You can still enable it by setting the DConf key /org/gnome/gnome-session/auto-save-session (alternative name: org.gnome.SessionManager auto-save-session), but it will only partially work. When I tried it, only some of my applications have been restored after logging out and logging in again, namely only applications which are neither using Wayland nor flatpak.

There is an alternative I have not tested using a separate script:

Same here, on my system only firefox gets restored upon login to Gnome.
