To distill this down to its most basic form, let's try this.

When resolvconf or resolved is installed but disabled, its DHCP hook
script still executes and potentially interferes with the proper
operation of other hook scripts.

My patch ensures that these hook scripts only run when the corresponding
service is enabled.

  Disabling systemd-resolved breaks dhclient resolvconf integration

Status in resolvconf package in Ubuntu:
Status in systemd package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  To reproduce, mask resolved:
  sudo systemctl mask systemd-resolved.service

  ...then disable network-manager for ifupdown interfaces:
  $cat /etc/NetworkManager/NetworkManager.conf              



  ...and reboot.

  You'll note that resolvconf integration with dhclient is now broken.
  Interfaces listed in /etc/network/interfaces or
  /etc/network/interfaces.d/* will not provide DNS configuration in
  /etc/resolv.conf and /run/resolvconf/interfaces/.

  This is because /etc/dhcp/dhclient-enter-hooks.d/resolvconf defines
  "make_resolv_conf()" as a valid function for the BOUND case, but
  /etc/dhcp/dhclient-enter-hooks.d/resolved undefines it (who's nasty
  now, eh?) even though resolved is masked.

  The file existence check in the beginning of /etc/dhcp/dhclient-enter-
  hooks.d/resolved should be more thorough, i.e. it should ensure that
  resolved is enabled, rather than simply look for the existence of
  /lib/systemd/systemd-resolved. This works for me:

  -if [ -x /lib/systemd/systemd-resolved ] ; then
  +if [ -x /lib/systemd/systemd-resolved ] && systemctl -q is-enabled 
systemd-resolved ; then

  Arguably, /etc/dhcp/dhclient-enter-hooks.d/resolvconf should implement
  a similar check, looking for /run/resolvconf/enable-updates as a
  condition for meddling with DNS settings. If desired, I'll file a
  separate bug for that package.
