If parshuram killed kshatriyas 21 times how do many kshatriyas like rajputs exists today,did the wifes of kshatriyas did niyogas with brahman rishis to give birth to new breed of Kshatiryas?

After the genocide of Kshatriyas by Parashuram, Kshetriya women used Brahmanas for enduring the Kshetriya race.
The son of Jamadagni (Parasurama), after twenty-one times making the earth bereft of Kshatriyas wended to that best of mountains Mahendra and there began his ascetic penances. And at that time when the earth was bereft of Kshatriyas, the Kshatriya ladies, desirous of offspring, used to come, O monarch, to the Brahmanas and Brahmanas of rigid vows had connection with them during the womanly season alone, but never, O king, lustfully and out of season. And Kshatriya ladies by thousands conceived from such connection with Brahmanas. Then, O monarch, were born many Kshatriyas of greater energy, boys and girls, so that the Kshatriya race, might thrive. And thus sprang the Kshatriya race from Kshatriya ladies by Brahmanas of ascetic penances. And the new generation, blessed with long life, began to thrive in virtue. And thus were the four orders having Brahmanas at their head re-established.
Thus, it is true that Brahmanas contributed Kshatriya women in-order to save the Kshetriya race. And as a result new generation of Kshetriya race came into existence.
But I am not sure about whether the Kshetriyas born at those times have any connection with modern Rajputs.
