My question would dnsmasq present the same problem?
Yes, it would. You are required to have one DHCP request handling service of some kind on the local subnet. You cannot have a local DHCP server, such as the one currently operating in your router and simulatneously relay DHCP requests to a remote DHCP server. [1]

You are correct.

[1] Unless you are configuring synchronized DHCP servers and their lease databases, such as with the dhcpd(8) -Y/-y options.
