It seems like you're right. JOSM has been suppressing that warning and
always assuming the answer no. I must've, by accident or frustration,
selected the radio button to never ask me that again. Since the option
to re-enable the warning isn't anywhere else but the advanced
preferences, I presumed the support was dropped. The corresponding
preferences entry is "message.add_primitive_to_relation" (set to "true"
to enable the warning).

After enabling that warning, I could add both duplicated ways and nodes.
Perhaps a similar thing is happening to the topic author.
