Windows clients and option 119

Working on some "stuff," and came across some info that Windows clients 
do not support option 119. But all the resources I've found start with 
"The Windows DHCP server does not have an option 119," and then go on to 
say that Windows clients don't support it.

Assuming that I have an ISC DHCP server that is offering option 119, 
will Windows clients request it? Or is it true that the only way to set 
the search list is via GPO? (And yes, I know about devolution, etc., but 
I need to have multiple strings for completely different domains.)
