It does - it treats your hypothetical "satgate" just like any other Igate.

There isn't any.  But that's OK, since there isn't a special version of
APRS-IS stripped of deduplication running in your hypothetical "satgate"
mode to connect them to.

This is exactly the same non-problem as using APRS-IS for RF propagation
analysis.  APRS-IS simply isn't designed for that, and the way it is
designed actively prevents its use in that manner.
