Placement of 'aucun/e' in passé composé

I found this sentence interesting:

Nous n'avons acheté aucune voiture.

Don't both parts of a negation (ne + plus/jamais/que/etc) usually go before the participle?

This question relates to:
French lesson "Ne ... aucun(e) = None (negation)"

Mostly, yes. But not always. Aucune refers to voiture and therefore goes right before it.
