So what protocol is used on this non-53 port?

How does "HTTP" sound? yes DNS-over-X is a thing these days and only
port 53 has the assurance that DNS protocol is actually being used.

This is part of why OpenBSD actively *removed* their custom feature of
supporting ports in /etc/resolv.conf "nameserver" setting (which this
directive is based on).
