Any statement needs to be taken in context.
– Rebirth is stopped as one gets rid of the defilements (asava/anusaya).
– That is clearer with the ten samyojana. Rebirths in certain realms are stopped as one breaks successive samyojana.
– When all defilements are removed, no more rebirths in any realm.
