The dhcp client uses its own configuration file, /etc/dhclient.conf
that can override certain values it gets from the DHCP server.

For instance:

interface "ne2" {
  supersede domain-name ""

To override the search line in the by dhcp generated /etc/resolv.conf

Read more about it in dhclient.conf(5)
