There's a slight possibility that it got changed in f10 but I don't have an f10 machine yet to test with.  I'll try to remedy that shortly however.  Also I would think that you could try disabling the serial ports in the bios to test this.

yeah, F9 fake node with serial and console elements in libvirt XML removed
and console=tty0 console=ttyS0,115200n8 boot params fails to boot:
input: ImExPS/2 Generic Explorer Mouse as /devices/platform/i8042/serio1/input/input3
Kernel panic - not synching: Attempted to kill init!
