Do regular orc boys have a 3 up armour save?

I believe they are armed with Light Armor, Choppas and Shields.
This gives them a 5+ save, which is bumped up to 4+ when the attacks are melee attacks from the front.

the best that a regular orc warrior can get is 4+, and that's only during combat to the front, with choppa & shield. orcs wear light armor.

la + sh + hw&s/front = 4+ as

plain orc warriors (orcs with no upgrades) have just light armor, so 6+

black orcs can manage 3+, because they wear heavy armor, but only if they use hw&s in the combat

With boar boyz you can get 3+ (2+ if fighting to the front counts for mounted units; but I don't think it does)

light armor +1
shield +1
mounted on boar +2

Indeed it does not apply.

Orcs on foot can get 4+ armour saves
Orcs on boars, and Black orcs on foot can get 3+ saves
Black Orcs on boars can get 2+ saves (obviously only characters)
