Well, a message that is sent to an exchange which then results in the
message going to several queues will obviously be duplicated. But
presumably in that case, your consumers consuming from the different
queues would be doing different tasks with the messages, hence the need
for the different queues in the first place.

That aside, no, within a queue, Rabbit does not arbitrarily duplicate
