 I just tested this out after a new installation of 10.0.2-PRELEASE, and
 the network manager appears to be working properly.
 I have tried multiple variations of custom DNS values, custom gateway
 (which goes in /etc/rc.conf), and custom search domain.

 The only strange thing I noticed was that after a reboot of the computer,
 the custom DNS settings were intact but the custom search domain was lost
 (probably because something in the network stack determined that the
 search domain was junk and removed it during bootup).
 After repeating the procedure with the custom search domain set to
 "localdomain" (as you had in your report) I was able to repeat this

 This seems to imply that it is something in the base FreeBSD network stack
 that is changing the settings as it deems appropriate rather than an error
 in the PC-BSD network configuration utility.

 Please open a ticket with the FreeBSD network team about this, or ask
 about it on one of the FreeBSD mailing lists.

 Here was my /etc/resolve.conf files before/after rebooting in case anyone
 wants to replicate this behavior.
