I meant a service writing resolv.conf, not a person. NetworkManager gets in the way of your manual setup of resolv.conf. It writes resolv.conf if you enable that service todo so, for example via a directive in ifcfg-xxx file.

Oh ok yeah, I always uninstall networkmanager, it causes more problems than anything. It sometimes even overrides the settings in sysconfig/network-scripts too. I hate services that overwrite actual config files. It makes it kinda hard to actually configure them.

Consequence of uninstalling the Network Manager is losing firewalld as well as potentially few other crucial network components. Instead of hating what is already delivered to you, you could try to work with it.
How's nsswitch file looking like? The hosts line- is the resolver set to look at /etc/hosts first and then at dns?
