Here's more on this found on this site:

Turns out if cache is shared (mine is) you get incomplete stats out
of nscd -g because applications are raiding its cookie jar behind its
back.

This is the intended way for it to operate, apparently.

And it also seems that postfix doesn't use nscd, although a simple
config change solves that; other apps also do not use nscd and they
can't be made to use it, apparently.

It's not really the application that uses nscd, the application is
unaware. nscd is used by the libc resolver. When an application does
it's own resolving, it typically will not use nscd.
