man NetworkManager.conf:

       dns=plugin1,plugin2, ...
              List DNS plugin names separated by ','. DNS plugins are used to
              provide  local caching nameserver functionality (which speeds up
              DNS queries) and to push DNS data to applications that use it.

              Available plugins:

                     this plugin uses dnsmasq to provide local caching name‐
                     server functionality.

(Note: haven't tried this.)
