If your ISP is hijacking your DNS, a DNS Filter won't do the job because it's still traditional DNS.

You either need to use DoT/DoH or a VPN. The WAN supports DoT w/ your choice of providers, but I don't know if OpenDNS is one of those providers (I don't see it in the list). If you insist on OpenDNS and DoT isn't available, you may have to use a VPN to route that DNS traffic within the VPN tunnel so the ISP can't see it, let alone redirect it. Or you could try one of the other DoT providers (e.g., CleanBrowsing) rather than OpenDNS.

DNSCrypt-proxy 2 has support for OpenDNS/Cisco (DNSCrypt & DNS over HTTPS servers)
The DNSCrypt Installer for Asuswrt-Merlin has built in support OpenDNS dynamic IP update by entering your OpenDNS/Cisco account information
Hope this can help :)
