Merging the occasional duplicate is normal flow, don't worry about it.
I'd much rather see the occasional smaller diffstat due to a diff that
got applied in both sides than I'd see people rebasing just to avoid
some silly duplicate.

It's if two branches consistently have many duplicates that I react,
because it tends to be some systematic error (often excessive
rebasing, but it could be some "ownership" argument too)

The "occasionally the same fix made it through two different trees" is
not just normal, it's _expected_ in distributed development. If it
never happens, that's a sign that people are serializing overmuch.
