Are you using a document in CMYK mode?

If you start creating a document with a Print preset you will have 100% black.

Check Preferences > Appearance of Black > set "Output" and "Display" Blacks Accurately.  If you want a Rich Black in a particular file, you need only create a custom swatch and all other instances should default to 100% K.

CMYK 100 K won't ever translate to RGB 000, because conversion uses color management.

 

You need to create two different files: one in CMYK, one in RGB and then set up the colors individually.
