Metricbeat caching old IPs after DNS change

We are using Metricbeat to collect info on our RabbitMQ cluster. With a DNS change we cutover our cluster, but the monitoring itself kept reporting on the cluster with the old IP address. A restart of the monitoring updated everything to correct addresses, we are just wondering if this is a known issue, or if there is an option for updating / turning-off this IP address caching?

Beats don't cache DNS results. The caching normally happens somewhere else. On Windows/macOS it is the OS itself that caches lookups. On Linux it depends on your /etc/resolv.conf, /etc/hosts, and /etc/nsswitch.conf.
