My bot is checking recentchanges for edit summaries containing \/\* wbmergeitems-to:0\|\|(Q[0-9]+) \*\/
For each match, it checks if a redirect was created. If not, the bot does the following:

  1. it merges the item again with ignoreconflicts=descriptions
  2. it clears the item
  3. it creates the redirect.

This is done with the same procedure since 2015 and it has not led to any user complaints. Based on this experience, I think it is safe to call by default after a merge the clear and createredirect functions.
