Subject: Re: MacOS: DNS setting has no effect if the tunnel is not the default gw

I am now running into this problem. I'm still running Mojave (10.14.6), 
if that makes any difference.

If AllowedIPs is everything, then /etc/resolv.conf is modified with the 
remote DNS server.
If AllowedIPs is a remote private network(s), then /etc/resolv.conf 
remains untouched, and DNS is local ISP.

Did you ever find a solution or workaround? I do not want all of my 
traffic to go through this tunnel, but I *do* want DNS to resolve for 
those private subnet hosts.
