I still do not get why these "duplicates entries" have an impact on your side... I get the point that some entries have an identical "deviceName" attribute, but technically, they have a different ID attribute!
If you run a GET query "https://graph.microsoft.com/v1.0/devicemanagement/managedDevices", you will certainly see/understand this. The fact that Azure Intune GUI shows you several devices with same string inside the "Device name" column, is sth you must deal with. The old times where you relied on AD/LDAP where you must had a unique computer name, is gone. Now it is the "ID" of the object that is unique.
The same would happen if you have 10 machines enrolled by 10 employees to Intune, and suddenly they all decide to rename their computer to "My computer" for fun : you will end up with 10 entries in Intune for your 10 computers having the same "Device Name", but what impact does it really have on your side?
So IMO, there is nothing to fix, nor to improve here.
