I don't understand. Why would they get created more than once?

Are you saying that the client is repeating a POST operation? If so then that client is buggy as POST is, as you say, not idempotent so clients should not repeat it.

Adding some new header is not going to fix a broken client because a broken client that replays POST is just as likely to not implement that extra header correctly!
