Being disappointed with built-in Zyxel DHCP server I merely disabled it
and set up a proper ISC DHCP server. I don't know, it's probably
unelegant to you, but it's not a DHCP server unless ISC made it.

I need to ask - what are you using instead of proper DHCP client?
Every DHCP client worthy of its name (ISC one, for instance) allows one
to redefine every part of client configuration via hooks.
For instance dhcpcd that I use has this specific example in its manpage:

So to stop dhcpcd from touching your DNS settings or starting
wpa_supplicant you would do:- nohook resolv.conf, wpa_supplicant

But the future *is* here already.

Tsk, tsk. Language. Also, of course they work.
