FF Duplicates Still In Use

I am on one of the site and observed that many FF Tags have Duplications. That Tags i am able to see in Control Structure as AI-Pepp as shown in Attachment but if i try to see reference where it is used then i did not find anything and in FF Builder also i did not find any AI-Pepp Object. Also If i go in Object Structure then i found this object under the FF Duplicates Object Types Category. Can Any One tell me this tags created all are duplicates only and can i remove them...? In which cases such Duplication may happen...?

Thanks in Advance....

Please run an "FF upload" (from Object type structure)each time you load and object .Kindly ensure that FF duplicates are removed as a result

Hi,

the duplication occurs if the same FF block occurs with two or more object IDs. This can happen when different device types bring the same function block but with different object instances (mostly for older device types - we now try to avoid this).

The objects should disappear during an FFLibraries upload after all projects have been updated once with the latest library.

Please don't delete these objects manually.

Best regards

Tags from Control Structure also will get removed automatically and is it safe to do library upload in running plant...?
