Most likely this is some issue between the kernel and the hardware/BIOS.

Can you try to reproduce this with "debug plymouth.enable=0" on the kernel command line and "quiet" removed from it? Try to shutdown with "systemctl poweroff -f". This should pretty quickly shut down, without iterating though the usual shutdown procedure, but without losing data. It should generate quite a bit of addition output at shutdown. Keep looking for the last line you see, and whether that is "Rebooting." or whether than it is "Powering off". If it's the latter and the machine nonetheless reboots, then this is kernel/bios/hw problem, otherwise it is a systemd/gnome/... problem.

Closing due to lack of response.
