Bug Description

At my university, WiFi network setup sets a local DNS Domain name (in a form of <university-name>.<country-tld>). That's alright; but when I come home with my laptop and resume it, the local DNS Domain name is still set (checked via systemd-resovle --status), and because of that I cannot open my university website: it's domain cannot be resoved on a local DNS (of course it cannot be resolved, it's not in local network anymore). Resolving manually on any other DNS server (via dig @<providers DNS or or>) works perfectly fine. Resolving any non-local name works fine too. DNS resolver IP's are right. Restarting systemd-resolved or-and NetworkManager does not fix the issue, only the full reboot can help. That's pretty annoying.

I am running Ubuntu 17.10 (soon to be upgraded to 18.04). Have this issue since installing 17.10, but wasn't able to find a clue until today.

What should be happening: Well, after I leave the network, resolver should forget local settings from that network, right?

What is happeing: it does not. Well, at least the resolver ip's are right.

P.S. It might be a NetworkManager issue but the only thing that I find that remembers local DNS is the systemd-resolved, feel free to change package.
