Do you really mean netstat -nrf inet4 , or should that be inet?  I am in FreeBSD now and checked "man netstat" for both FreeBSD and NetBSD.

I am in FreeBSD now but can see the /etc/resolv.conf files match :

# Generated by resolvconf

I run netstat -nrf inet on FreeBSD, and it shows only local interfaces, so don't expect anything better in NetBSD:

Routing tables

Destination        Gateway            Flags     Netif Expire
default          UGS         re0          link#2             UH          lo0     link#1             U           re0        link#1             UHS         lo0

Now if I knew what options/parameters to tweak, I could try again in NetBSD.

For when to try to rebuild NetBSD, I look to

and shy away when I see something like
