I will add options. Maybe like this?

Command line option:

--dupe-suppression       Suppress dupes in wordlist [regardless of size]

john.conf options (as delivered):

# Dupe suppression will be performed if file is smaller than this
WordlistDupeSuppressThreshold = 0

# Same as above, but for closed-loop mode (.pot files)
PotFileDupeSuppressThreshold = 1073741824
