src/net/dnsconfig_unix.go has this comment:

// See resolv.conf(5) on a Linux machine.
// TODO(rsc): Supposed to call uname() and chop the beginning
// of the host name to get the default search domain.

...which succinctly describes the issue.

Here's an example: Given a server with uname -n "foo.x.y.z" where /etc/resolv.conf only has nameserver lines, and with another server with hostname "bar.x.y.z", net.LookupHost("bar") results in "no such host" when using the built-in DNS resolver, but succeeds when running with "GODEBUG=netdns=cgo".
