I don't think this statemement is true.
resolvconf is by no means a Linux standard interface, e.g. Debian never
has shipped with resolvconf installed by default.

It's an optional interface (where different implementations exist).

I think the only distro that ever installed resolvconf by default is
Ubuntu (and I'm not sure they still do on all flavors nowadays).

Which distros nowadays do install resolvconf by default?

We can't do that (at least not in the systemd package) as that would
make other implementations like openresolv uninstallable.

Why is it that all of the instruments seeking intelligent life in the
universe are pointed away from Earth?
