Right, as far as I can tell, that is currently just a mockup.

Everaldo's first submission for the Ubuntu GNOME plymouth theme was a
similar textured gray background. It was great, but unfortunately, gdm
shows the system default wallpaper for a few seconds after plymouth
before the textured gray overlay of the log in screen. I thought that
was a bit disruptive.

I don't really want to change plymouth (except for bugfixes) for 12.10
since we're quite late in the release cycle, but we can try different
things for 13.04.
