Correct, we do not use systemd, but OpenRC.

This is also correct, ICD2 is used. I guess that resolv.conf is written
by the IPv4 plugin [1], but I am not sure why it would not update. The
scripts date back to Fremantle time (N900 Maemo) so they could probably
use an update. Is /ec/resolv.conf file modifiable?
