Er, not by Network Manager. I append a search list in dhclient.conf, and
network manager neither cares nor knows about it - it just starts the DHCP

to Network Manager.

Again, not only does Network Manager not do that, once you've
selected "manual configuration", afaik NM is no longer even managing that

So, it's absolutely nothing to do with NM - just post your dhclient.conf.
