As for your original post, yes, that's true.
The passive voice is indicated by a form of the verb "to be", so the question form would have to begin with a form of "to be" (or a form of "to have" for the perfect forms of "to be", or a modal, of course). In any case, forms of "to do" would not occur in that position.

"I was born" is not really a passive voice construction. It is the simple past of the verbal expression 'to be born'. "To bear" can be used passively, "as he was borne of the Virgin Mary", meaning "carried".
