MyQ does not use wifi / dhcp provided DNS

I have recently updated by wifi and wired networks to use the service OpenDNS.org.  I then added ACLs into my firewall to block all DNS traffic out of my home network on UDP port 53 that was not part of the OpenDNS.org service.  This worked fine for all my devices except 2.  The MyQ Garage device stopped communicating and started blinking green.  The other device was a wireless IP camera that has a dynamic DNS service for registration. 

Can someone confirm that the MyQ has hard coded DNS services for IP addresses 4.4.4.4 and 8.8.8.8 in the device?  This were the 2 IP addresses that were attempted to be contacted on udp port 53 when I was blocking all but the 2 I had in my DHCP server.  It seems that the MyQ device is not using the DHCP supplied DNS servers and is using the above addresses.
