DNS with Tor (compared to VPNs).

AIUI here is the DNS situation ("leaks") when using an ISP, a VPN, and Tor.

Can someone please correct me if I am wrong / inaccurate.

If I am using my ISPs DNS then they can log the websites via my DNS requests. 

If I am using a commercial VPN then the VPNs DNS logs the websites.   However, my ISP does not see the DNS requests (or the website since all traffic flows through the encrypted VPN).

If I am using Tor then all DNS resolution is done by the Tor exit node.  No DNS requests leave my computer unencrypted - unlike in the previous two examples.
