Q - question

DRAGMODE does not accept the value "2"

A - answer Please distinguish between the DRAGMODE system variable and the DRAGMODE (_DRAGMODE) command. The prompts and accepted values are different!

The DRAGMODE variable (setvar) accepts numeric values, the _DRAGMODE command prompts for On/Off (Yes/No).

Another example of such command/variable twins is LTSCALE. Such duplicity normally doesn't occur in localized AutoCAD versions as command names are mostly localized.
