Why does Huawei Netcube appear as DNS server to a MacBook

I'm operating a MacBook (with macOS 10.13.6) at home. My internet connection is thru a Huawei Netcube E5180s-22.

When I inquire my DNS configuration with scutil --dns I get this (192.168.8.1 is the private IP address of the NetCube on the WLAN):

resolver #1
  nameserver[0] : 192.168.8.1
  nameserver[1] : 192.168.8.1

Now I am wondering: does the NetCube run some kind of DNS server, or is this report an artifact of it performing NAT (or similar)?
