The problem DoH presents is that it means that no software has to use your system's resolver to do it. A program or script can do lookups using any DoH resolver it wishes, regardless of how you've set your system up, and because the lookup uses HTTPS, you won't even be able to detect that your resolver is being bypassed, let alone prevent it. That's why a MITM proxy is the only way to protect yourself against it.
