Isnt it more correct to say that your first statement regards to when

cat /etc/nsswitch.conf | grep "hosts:"

reads "files" on the local host trying to reslove something and the
reminder of your statement should obey /etc/resolv.conf whenever

cat /etc/nsswitch.conf | grep "hosts:"

reads dns?

Also, as stated previously by Adrian, Firefox (at least) announced the
other year that they would tunnel name resolving through HTTPS to some
server and bypass the above. Not sure if that applies to Fennec or not.
