Yes, some who identify as Buddhist are as such, and will even admit it if forced into a corner. But the Dharma isn't really about aversion toward desire, nor about asceticism, and many (esp. modern) Buddhists make a profound self-inquiry into desire by neither pushing it away nor running after it, flowing river like about it. Aversion and attachment are both considered problematic in
Buddhist thought, and aversion to desire is ... tadah! ... aversion.
