Where is one supposed to write the domain name?

Nowhere! The domain name belongs to an active network device. Only the
domain name of a YP/NIS domain can be set. And this active network device
is used to ask the domain name server for the FQDN of the system.

That's a fair answer, thanks.

Source: man 1 hostname
man 1 hostnamectl

Nota Bene: the usage of the domain part of a FQDN in /etc/hostname is
plain wrong

Oh! :-o :-(

Cheers / Saludos,
