Usually Private DNS is switched off by default anyway? Did you activate it yourself? If you turn off Private DNS then the device will default to using the DNS of the active connection, i.e. if on your home WiFi network then it'll usually be your ISPs DNS.

Yes  Private DNS should be switched off by default.     Go to Connections-More Connections-Private DNS.  Three options are  Off,Automatic, Private DNS Provider Hostname.   A bit of background here, though there are different opinions.  https://www.deadlinenews.co.uk/2019/12/18/what-is-private-dns-and-should-you-be-using-it/
