-fmerge-all-constants is an extension where the addresses of the constant
variables may be the same even if without the option they would need to be
guaranteed to be different.  That is the whole point of the option, many people
just don't care about it and care more about .rodata size, so they have an
option to tell the compiler about it.

> I presume -fmerge-all-constants pre-dates ICF?

Yes, by far.  -fmerge-all-constants is from 2001, ICF from 2014.
