I think user could not change the dupe suppression. This option is
stored in .rec file so when user restores session from .rec file he
gets it back. When user do not put this option at the start .rec file
do not have it inside and user could not pass it additionally. So if
we do not modify .rec we could not add/remove options.

If we'd like to restore session and add/remove options modifying .rec
file then the dupe suppression would be a problem. But that is a bad
idea in any case.
