[ndnSIM] Question on default forwarding strategy

I have a question on a piece of code about default forwarding strategy.
It locates in ndn-forwarding-strategy.cc, OnInterest(...) function.
In the code, you check the the nonce of interest packet to check whether
it is duplicated. Since in ndn-consumer.cc, you assign a different nonce
to an interest packet even if it is retransmitted, I don't know the
purpose of this check. It seems that the duplication will happen total
randomly (according to some distribution set in consumer). How do you
define such 'duplicate'.
Thank you for your help.
All the best,
