Dupe checking is done in the APRS-IS server, typically javAPRSSrvr.

The fromCall, toCall, and payload. The path is NOT included in the
dupecheck as it varies as digipeaters and IGates handle the packet.

The default dupe check window is 30 seconds. Any packet delivered to
APRS-IS later than 30 seconds after the first delivery of the same
packet will be passed on into the network.
Delayed dupe introduction is easier to trace with packets that contain
timestamps. The raw NMEA GPS strings include the timestamp so they will
be easy to see the duplicate deliver vs time time of entry.
