I want `3' _independently_ of on which column the cursor is on that line and therefore use (save-excursion (beginning-of-line) (org-outline-level)).

To cover this I use (outline-on-heading-p), without the optional parameter in my case.

The matter is that within any one line I rather want to _ignore_ the column than to _know_ on which column the cursor is.

With all discussed here in this thread combined together I use
(if (outline-on-heading-p)
     (save-excursion (beginning-of-line) (org-outline-level)))
for my suggestion of heading visibility depth stepping described here
