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.

Next question: then what was the purpose of the domain entry box in Leap
15.0 and all previous versions since I remember?
