I can only confirm that, at least for the capi-enabled version.
When I execute pon, the script /etc/ppp/ip-up which in turn calls the
files in the /etc/ppp/ip-up.d, one of the script in there queries the
remote peer for the dns-server's IPs and adds them to a replacement
resolv.conf while the old one is backed up (Mine is empty because I'm
not on a netwrok anyway).
Upon execution of poff the reverse process takes place, i.e.
/etc/ppp/ip-down is called which executes the scripts in
/etc/ppp/ip-down.d and some script in there replaces the
'online'-version of resolv.conf with the backed-up 'offline'-version.
It's all in TFM, =)
