We've been over this before. Your "search host dns" line doesn't do anything at all as written, but will screw things up if copied in a different order by someone who doesn't know that it's simply broken.

Just saying its wrong doesn't cut it in the face of the fact
that I did it in self-defense against NM back when NM first came out,
what, a decade ago and was not then removeable with anything but a root
session of rm. The package managers insisted on gutting the system if
you wanted it gone back then.

Really, rants about something that may or may not have happened 10 years ago are just a waste of time.

If you're looking for instructions on how to use resolvconf, others have posted it in the recent past. Since you seem to just want to complain about it, I'm not sure what else to offer.
