Oops, the values should be preceded by "0x", i.e. "vga=0x341" since
the values are hexadecimal.

GRUB has no splash screen. If I am not mistaken, François is referring
to the splash screen created by rhgb (red hat graphical boot). The
"vga=" kernel parameter controls the screen resolution during boot and
up through the presentation of the login screen.
