The startup screen is inhibited quite generally in Aquamacs.
As a hack you can get it back with

(remove-hook 'command-line-args "--no-splash")

but that may cease to work in future versions.

where does it say that this "would be set in startup.el"?

Otherwise, it is the intended behavior.

No.  This should get fixed at some point.
