This software <https://github.com/SivanLiu/HwFrameWorkSource> seems to
use the string for in-band signaling:

|   if (dhcpResults != null) {
|       WifiStateMachine.this.stopIpClient();
|       dhcpResults.domains = "getCachedDhcpResultsForCurrentConfig";

<https://github.com/SivanLiu/HwFrameWorkSource/blob/0c5f7a1ad8074c12b0a830e49e6e1e1df575e0cd/Mate20_9_0_0/src/main/java/com/android/server/wifi/WifiStateMachine.java#L2573>

I can't read the README file unfortunately, but perhaps it's
sufficiently widely deployed to explain the observations.

Thanks,
Florian
