For gnus-suppress-duplicates you are right. I would change the global
setting into a local let-bind.

gnus-save-duplicate-list has effect only when Gnus is exited. I
understand it such a way, that Lars wants to save the list of such
duplicate entries from the gnus-ephemeral group created by
debbugs. Using Gnus outside debbugs doesn't need this setting. So it
makes sense to set gnus-save-duplicate-list globally, for Lars.

Best regards, Michael.
