    You're right in saying that in interfaces manpage you cannot find any
    reference to that directive, but you can find it in
    /usr/share/doc/resolvconf/README.gz:

    [...]
    3.4 ifupdown
        * Remove any "up" or "down" commands from /etc/network/interfaces
          that futz with /etc/resolv.conf and remove any scripts from
          /etc/network/if-*.d/ that futz with /etc/resolv.conf.
        * For each inet static logical interface through which a nameserver is
          accessible, add lines like the following to /etc/network/interfaces .

              dns-nameservers 11.22.33.44 55.66.77.88
              dns-search foo.org bar.com

    [...]

    Bye.
