Dnsmasq is the specified DNS server. How does any app get around that,
other than going to the root servers etc.

I don't know that anything does get around that, but if anything wanted to I
imagine it would be the
same way Dig or postfix gets around nscd.

No way.

They get around nscd because nscd is not a DNS, it just replaces some (not all) system calls with new functionality. When they do a DNS call, whatever DNS is defined for the system, local, external or at the other end of the world, responds. No way around that.
