HestiaCP with not DNS option to install


I have installed HestiaCP with no DNS (bash hst-install.sh -k no -s hostname -e [email protected] -p password). After the installation when I go to Firewall I see that port 53 TCP & UPD is opened but I choose to not install the DNS option. So when I not select the DNS parameter to install is any service that use this port? I want to use port 53 with a another service and I have some error, show me that this port is used somewhere?

When DNS is not installed there should be no service listing on the port. But don’t forget the server still needs to look up DNS request. So probally there are still services active on the port
