Unfortunately your sentence is incomplete. Can you please update your post to explain what you mean by deduplication.

Thanks.

Thank for the clarification.
VeraCrypt doesn't work at the data level for which he has no information. It only operates at the cluster level which is the basic unit for storage on disks.

So, VeraCrypt doesn't have any information about the file structure or organization. It only operates on blocks of storage sectors.
I don't see how deduplication could be implemented at VeraCrypt level. Logically, it has to be implemented at a higher level.
