Description

The RTD documentation for the DNS EVE-JSON fields (15.1.2.5.1 https://suricata.readthedocs.io/en/latest/output/eve/eve-json-format.html#id4) still lists rdata as being a field in the dns sub-object for DNS answers. However, in the Rust logging code there is no such field being added. Rdata information is only given as part of the dns.answers or dns.grouped output.

I think this can actually be closed. Looking at it again the documentation does not really claim that rdata is a top level field, it just speaks of an 'outline of fields seen in the different kinds of DNS events'. Since the examples are all up to date AFAICS we're fine here.
