"Use These DNS Servers" only customizable when "Use Static IP Address" selected

I'd prefer to use 1.1.1.1 (and 1.0.0.1) as DNS servers for my Orbi network. However, I am unable to customize the DNS server information without ALSO selecting to "Use Static IP Address" under Internet IP Address settings. If I leave that set to "Get Dynamically from ISP" then I cannot select "Use These DNS Servers" under "Domain Name Server (DNS) Address."

 

Is this how it's suppose to work? These settings didn't seem coupled on previous routers I've used.

 

Firmware Version V2.3.5.30

Model: RBK53|Orbi AC3000 Tri-band WiFi System

Is your Orbi using Circle?

I love my Orbi.
