@Thomas
Sorry if my explanation doesn't suffice but... First I took the 12.04 image that is the desktop-i386-32bit that was originally posted on Ubuntu website.
I installed it and added some minor stuff like Skype and VLC. Then to create a bootable/redistributable copy of it I use remastersys (which creates valid iso/installers for previous versions). It creates ISO with ubiquity installer, the iso is already missing /etc/resolv.conf link present on the original system. 
So, I think the issue might be "remastersys" iso creator related.... 
I googled around and found a solution for the same issue on debian: http://lists.debian.org/debian-live/2009/04/msg00040.html saying that in chroot they "added the link in config/chroot_local-includes/etc/ , and it simply works ..."
So I think this is an extra step that people creating a custom/live ISO should take.

Title:
  /etc/resolv.conf symlink does not exist after initial installation of
  resolvconf package

Status in “resolvconf” package in Ubuntu:
  Incomplete

Bug description:
  I upgraded an 11.10 install to 12.04, and now I'm unable to resolve
  domain names because Network Manager does not populate my
  /etc/resolv.conf file.

  For example, my local wireless router uses the domain "mylocaldomain"
  and nameservers 10.157.10.12 and 10.157.10.14, so in 11.10, after
  connecting to the router I would see this in my /etc/resolv.conf:

  domain mylocaldomain
  search mylocaldomain
  nameserver 10.157.10.12
  nameserver 10.157.10.14

  Now /etc/resolv.conf contains the settings last set before I upgraded
  to 12.04, and doesn't update them for whatever network I'm currently
  on. I have to manually guess the settings and modify /etc/resolv.conf
  in order to resolve domain names.

  I believe this may be related to
  https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/resolvconf/+bug/922677 and
  how the "resolvconf" program has been introduce to manage this. I
  believe this is a new bug with how prior installs are improperly
  upgraded.

  I tried removing the line "dns=dnsmasq" from
  /etc/NetworkManager/NetworkManager.conf and then running `sudo restart
  network-manager`, but that had no effect.

  I tried running `resolvconf --enable-updates` but I get the error
  "resolvconf: Error: /etc/resolv.conf isn't a symlink, not doing
  anything."

  Based on https://help.ubuntu.com/12.04/serverguide/network-
  configuration.html#name-resolution, I tried establishing this symlink
  myself, but the file /run/resolvconf/resolv.conf does not exist on my
  system.
