connman (which I don't use, and have only read about) does _not_ appear
to include a recursive nameserver.

The data you've posted so far that I've read in this thread (but I
haven't caught up with the full thread, yet) seem bizarre, in suggesting
that connman itself is hogging port 53 on localhost -- which would
definitely mean either it's handling any recursive requests or nothing

I'd have been extremely surprised if any connection management utility
had an integral recursive nameserver. The latter are complicated
projects, which is why there have been relatively few successful ones.
