Yes it will get triggered by system updates from time to time, so it would be worth trying and see if breaks things. A reproducible bug is much
better than one that says "things break after a random reboot"!

I don't have any UEFI hardware still, so not entirely sure about this. But I believe the UEFI entries are added by the OS, maybe you can use
efibootmgr to remove the dupe. No idea if this is causing your issues though.
