Eero DNS caching isn't caching...

Or is it just me...?

When I turn of the DNS caching (I had this previously with Eero 5, and now with Eero 6), while it does resolve the queries, it just simply doesn't cache them. Next time the same query sent to Eero takes again similar amount of time to respond (15-30 ms).

When I use dummy linux box with dnsmasq running on it, I can clearly see result of caching: cutting regular cold query from 15-30 ms to just 5 or 6.

Ironically, if I turn off caching, and sent query to Eero then: the story is different and resolve is in fact faster ๐Ÿ˜‚

Has anyone else observed this behavior? Mind you yes, I tried resetting network, setting everything from scratch, etc...
