Thatʼs why some of the GNU/Linux dns implementations have a
resolv.conf that points you at localhost, and then they run a daemon
that takes care of the actual DNS queries and updating the resolver
IPs (I have a vague memory of dnsmasq doing that, and maybe
systemd-resolvd, but I have no such abominations on my system 😀)
