Yes, I just filed it after reading the discussion on IRC and this bug
report that was linked as describing similar behavior:

This really requires a fix on the rancher-dns side. I'm not sure
exactly what glibc is doing, but it couldn't be giving the behavior
you want without doing something wrong: it's falling back and trying
different search domains when it hasn't been told that the first one
doesn't exist, only that the nameserver is experiencing a problem.
