They are specified in /etc/network/interfaces just as you instructed, 
and the dnsmasq-base package is installed.  But when dnsmasq is 
installed then resolvconf generates an incorrect /etc/resolv.conf.  If I 
remove the dnsmasq package then resolvconf works properly and generates 
the expected contents for /etc/resolv.conf.

This is a new bug with 16.04.  It was not present under 14.04, and the 
contents of my /etc/network/interfaces file has not changed.

  resolvconf doesn't create the correct /etc/resolv.conf file when
  static IP addresses are used

Status in resolvconf package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  By default, when installing ubuntu-desktop (and when installing some
  other packages as well), apt will also install dnsmasq as a
  dependency.  When dnsmask is installed, and static IP addresses are
  used, resolv.conf creates a nearly empty /etc/resolv.conf file.  The
  file only contains entries for localhost and the search domain.  If
  static IP addresses are defined in /etc/network/interfaces, then
  shouldn't those DNS servers should be included in /etc/resolv.conf
  regardless of the presence of dnsmask?
