DNS: problem with redhat-config-bind

running redhat 8.0 with bind v9 and redhat-config-bind 1.8.1

background: I want to implement a custom configuration for named.conf, specifically the OPTIONS section. I understand that redhat-config-bind will automatically generate named.conf each time I apply changes so I put my custom OPTIONS section in named.custom. I also removed the existing OPTIONS section from named.conf so that named will not get confused by two OPTIONS sections -- one in named.conf and the other in the named.custom.

problem: All works as expected until I apply a change using redhat-config-bind. The result is that the OPTIONS section in named.conf is recreated. This prevents named from loading due to duplicate OPTIONS sections.

question: how can I either
1) prevent redhat-config-bind from recreating the OPTIONS section in named.conf
2) continue to use redhat-config-bind to manage zone records and also be able to implement custom parameters in the OPTIONS section of either named.conf or named.custom.

Perhaps the answer is not to use redhat-config-bind at all since the configurable parameters are so very limited.
