Not quite. With each rebound player and team control are re-established. 3 sec count is then started on anyone in paint. Each try (Shooting) ends both player and team control and therefore 3 sec count.

The cumulative amont of time in the paint by any player is of no consequense when team control in frontcourt does not exist or is gained and lost so quickly due to multiple trys as in yoour sitch.
