Texture not duplicated after serializing and loading.

Texture duplicated.

That’s expected.

The scene loader won’t reuse any Texture objects that may already exist because of side effects. Imagine that you want to change a property of the texture for your first object but you don’t want it to change for the 2nd object (the one you get after serialization/parsing). If you have only one Texture object, you can’t do this. However, the system reuses internal textures, so there’s no duplicate data / no duplicated GPU textures, you just have two separate Texture objects that you can update independently.
