Does it? Because its documentation says otherwise:

syzbot will keep track of this bug report.
Once a fix for this bug is merged into any tree, reply to this email
with:
#syz fix: exact-commit-title
To mark this as a duplicate of another syzbot report, please reply
with:
#syz dup: exact-subject-of-another-report
If it's a one-off invalid bug report, please reply with:
#syz invalid
Note: if the crash happens again, it will cause creation of a new bug
report.
Note: all commands must start from beginning of the line in the email
body.

_You_ should be doing duplicates processing, and preferably you should
also take care to translate replies into something syzbot
understand. Reports should come from your email adress, and you should
really handle replies that do not come in required format.
