Is the minority attack obsolete per AlphaZero ?

In Sadler & Regan's book Game Changer it's noted that AlphaZero never does a minority attack.
Surprising as Black's goal in the Najdorf, & other Sicilians, is a queenside minority attack. Could this mean these openings are obsolete and the idea of a minority attack be reconsidered ?
Admittedly I haven't studied the whole book or AlphaZero in detail.
