As you can see above, this is the issue with new kernel > 6.13 .Before version shows the luks encryption password prompt but not on latest versions. Searched online for known issue or bug but cant find because this is a unique situation, as it uses systemd-boot,plymouthd and luks encryption whose combination isnt used by many so not lot of it is discussed.
Also if above cant be resolved, need to know how to change the bootctl set-default automatically to new kernel installed because if new kernel isnt set as default boot fails and not sure why. I need to reboot and choose new kernel on systemd-boot entries and then it boots
