WireGuard behaviour with systemd-resolved

I've noticed some concerning behaviour using WireGuard on Manjaro GNOME. When the WireGuard interface is brought up, the system starts using the DNS servers provided in the wg-client.conf file. Intermittently however, internal DNS records will resolve using their public IP addresses. Using tcpdump, I'm able to see the system is using and for some queries. These addresses are configured as fallback DNS servers in systemd-resolved. They were acquired via DHCP before the WireGuard interface was brought up.

Is this an issue with WireGuard, or systemd-resolved? Based on what information I'm able to find, it appears there are some big concerns with how systemd-resolved handles DNS, so I'm more inclined to think the issue lies there.
