Origin of the Problem
In versions of RHEL newer than 7.3, visual assets for
gnome-shell (and thus GDM) are now compiled into
gresource binary files. This includes the background image for the GDM login screen. Bug 1651378 was filed as a feature request for changing this behavior; however, the bug was declined in favor of the login screen rework currently in progres upstream. At the time of writing, it is scheduled to be included in a future version of Rocky Linux 8; however, release dates are subject to change.
