You gethostbyname and so on uses DNS.

That very clearly says that you are using DNS!
I think that your resolver library uses that.

Content-Description: resolv.conf

> nameserver
> nameserver
> nameserver

This filr very clearry says that you have using DNS also :-)

In some resolver libraruer you can say that don't use DNS, with

hostresorder local

in resolv.cond

Content-Description: /etc/mail/service.switch.nodns

> hosts	files
