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:
- it merges the item again with ignoreconflicts=descriptions
- it clears the item
- 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.
