in the intended cases it means, that it was tried to add two different
font attributes to the same font dictionary. But here is a case where
this happens even without:

\font\aa cmr10 at 10pt
\pdffontattr\aa {foo}
\aa abc
\font\bb cmr10 at 11pt
%\pdffontattr\bb {bar}
\bb abc

Both TeX fonts refer to the same font dictionary. So there is only one
font, and this gets the attribute "foo".

The above source creates the right PDF. Maybe we need to get rid of the
warning here.
