I just reopened this question, which had been closed as a duplicate of another.

I navigated away and went to visit the page later, it turns out, the Possible Duplicate banner wasn't removed automatically.

How come?

    I'd say it was because it was the old style notification rather than the current "modern" UI.

    That should still remove the banner, as it can be identified by the <!-- End of … text --> auto-comment.

    Indeed - I suspect that all the old code was removed when closing was revamped.
