what make me wonder is that accessing through the sabayon recovery mode a lot of stuff isn't mounted, that's the reason why I couldn't see my home. Is there a reason that for?
Can you rephrase this? Are you talking about 1 or 2 issues here?

I already solved the issue about removing Gnome and loosing the GUI due to a typo on a configuration file

the second one is just a general question about the recovery mode of Sabayon which has nothing to do with DEs
Try to log in using the recovery option when booting and you won't see the home directory of a regular user

I think one of the most frequent uses of the recovery mode is probably to fix problems with your partitions. I don't think it's the same with all Linux distros, but leaving unessential mounts unmounted would at least make sense.

How are sessions removed?
I got rid off Gnome DE but the session is still there
