I've hacked a little into dpkg-shlibdeps and while doing this, I've found that the code makes allowance for a single library being mentioned in two
different symbol files. I'd like to ask if (and when) can such situation
actually arise.

My first guess would be nvidia-glx and its diversion of libGL.so.1.

Yes, but even then, libGL.so.1 (the one used for building a package) is only mentioned in one symbol file, namely the one from nvidia-glx, isn't it (let's put aside the package doesn't feature a symbol file)? Why should the libgl1-mesa-glx symbol file, if it existed, be taken into account?
