For example OS X contains the usual Microsoft Office fonts in .ttf format in /Library/Fonts, but upon installation Office installs its own versions, often in old FFIL suitcase format, in /Library/Fonts/Microsoft. I resolved the duplicates manually in Font Book by disactivating the Microsoft versions, but what happens with mkluatexfontdb?

Not exactly, the last seen font is the only one considered, so if you
have a font under /usr/share/fonts and another version under ~/.fonts,
the later is the one ends in the database, if this isn't what you are
getting, then it is a bug.
