Yeah, I thought it was weird that the resolver(3) and resolv.conf(5)
man pages offered by Linux are written with only glibc in mind. But
unless the linux-man upstream is willing to document different
behaviours by multiple libc programs, ideally, it would indeed be
helpful if musl specific behavior is documented in man pages or any
other form of documentation.

Sure! Thank you for your response. It was quite helpful.
