I'm referring to a caching resolver running on the local machine, i.e.
127.0.0.1, not a nameserver running somewhere else on a local network.

When I'm connecting via the WiFi hotspot at some local business, the
DHCP server is not under my control.  NetworkManager invokes dhclient
with a custom config file that NetworkManager generates anew for
each invocation, and no customization of that configuration is
possible.
