It's worse; it appears that whenever I start GIMP *period*, it's in
single window mode.

I don't like single window mode.  I just don't.  That's my final
answer.  It just doesn't fit my working style, which is to have lots
of windows open all over the place.  And I don't want tiled, either.
Again, personal preference.

But I cannot find a way to turn it off permanently.  I can uncheck
Windows->Single Window Mode, but the next time I start it, it's back
to single window mode.  I haven't found an option to disable it by
default either; hopefully I've just missed it?

fwiw: I don't either.  I just opened gimp.  it opened into single window
mode.  I unchecked "single window mode", closed and reopened and got
multiple window mode.  

What happens if you run it as

gimp <filename>


opensuse Tumbleweed 20181107

I'm using Leap 15.0, so probably built the same way.

gimp <filename> 

still opens in multi-window mode.  perhaps you have a old configuration
lingering ???

If so, it's not apparent where.  This is my ~/.config/GIMP/2.10/gimprc
(and that's where other GIMP config files live, such as printrc, which
I'm certain is the one being used here).

# GIMP gimprc
# This is your personal gimprc file.  Any variable defined in this file takes
# precedence over the value defined in the system-wide gimprc:
# /etc/gimp/2.0/gimprc
# Most values can be set within GIMP by changing some options in the
# Preferences dialog.
