No, dwarf specifies a section-relative address.  The issue is that,
with the exception of IA-64, no target has section-relative relocations.
So instead we force the VMA to zero such that the VMA address and
the section offset are identical.

If you cannot do this with PE, then you have to add new relocs.
There's no other way around it.
