I may be wrong but this is how it goes:

Since GNOME 3.20 GDM defaults to Wayland. So, when my system starts up, GDM is launched under Wayland by the Debian-+ user:

Debian-+  2962  0.0  0.0 191964  5260 tty1     Ssl+ 14:54   0:00 /usr/lib/gdm3/gdm-wayland-session gnome-session --autostart /usr/share/gdm/greeter/autostart

However, when I log-in into my GNOME-Session, I bring up a Xorg session, run by my user:

tanty     3118  0.0  0.0 202048  5564 tty2     Ssl+ 14:54   0:00 /usr/lib/gdm3/gdm-x-session --run-script default

Of course, I can change GDM's behavior to always use the Xorg backend, even at startup, if you think that could be causing some problems ...

$ cat /etc/gdm3/daemon.conf 
# Uncoment the line below to force the login screen to use Xorg
