Continuous DNS queries

My Planefinder Radar, running 5.0.161 armhf software and reporting normally, queries DNS server for A and AAAA records for pfclient-upload.planefinder.net every 10 seconds. I guess this is because the unit gets an IPv6 address and pfclient-upload.planefinder.net does not have an AAAA record or IPv6 address. Can the unit give up asking for AAAA when none is returned?
 
DNS queries are tiny in bandwidth so I wouldn't worry about it, you wouldn't notice it unless you had something monitoring it. It will always ask for a AAAA record if the unit got an IPv6 address from your DHCP server.

The DNS TTL is set low to facilitate changes to the IP address.
 
Thank you Lee, I recently installed 'pi-hole' to filter/cache DNS and it showed up there.
