nordVPN leak DNS test faild

Hello all. Since i run out of options i come to ask if some can help... =)
I'm using ubuntu [budgie].

Since world is going to end soon [again =)] i got my self good deal at nordVPN. Just to be secure... Install openVPN and done settings as it say's on nordVPN web-site.

I run few DNS leak test and it found my default DNS and an DNS that i load-file in connection is leaking.

At my smartphone is ok. With APP i connect to any server and run multiple test and only app-selected server is found.
I edit my reslov.conf


[ from nordVPN article ]

Just to say. My router is SIM card based 3g/4g internet.

At first live support they say that might my router leak original DNS. And i can't stay to that since my smartphone connected to that router don't leak an DNS. Also without wifi, smartphone with his own 4g don't leak any DNS.

So i thinking is there any possible that any program/software that can leak DNS to internet. Any way to find it and fix so i can use it with secure ?

Do i missing anything ?

If someone can share words of wisdom or give some points of useful article how to set it up...

I’m no networking guru, but for me, I have always solved the DNS leak issue by killing my ipv6 and just using ipv4. It is probably a cheap hack, but it worked for me.
