The data floggers don't want you be in control. Their business model falls apart if users have the ability to shut off that flow of juicy PII to them. Which is why you can bet that Google's decision to force chrome to use DoH to their own servers had pretty much zero to do with security, other than maybe the security of their revenue stream by ensuring their ads are harder to block and that no one but them would be able to slurp those DNS resolves.
