I do not see how that can be so.
An Arahant still experiences the khandhas – indeed, he needs contact with them in order to survive in the body – yet he generates no attachment. Therefore no dukkha.
But for all the rest, for you and me, it is precisely that ‘..upadana’ part that is the cause of the ‘..dukkha’.
