Currently that is the correct and expected behavior. To activate Multi-WAN support, multiple interfaces must have a gateway set on the interface itself. If they are dynamically addressed, this happens automatically. If they are static, you have to pick the gateway on the assigned interface.

That said, that may not be the best way to determine whether or not that field should appear on system.php for DNS servers. While not a bug, we can look into adding support for that scenario in the future.

In the meantime you can always use manual static routes.
