Is there any condition that makes duplicates to be auto deleted at all? Or the duplicate status would protect of it:
If the question was closed more than
9days ago, and ...
- not closed as a duplicate
... it will be automatically deleted

Actually it is. There's another conditions that doesn't exclude duplicates that can cause deletion, namely:
If the question is more than
30days old, and ...
- has −1 or lower score
So, yes, duplicated questions are deleted, so long they have been downvoted. To verify this just search
duplicate:yes score:..-1 answers:0 locked:0 and look for post older than 30 days, you will find none.
