I was making a guess regarding the ATTR component of an (ATTR . METHOD)
element of eudc-duplicate-attribute-handling-method, because its default
value is ((email . duplicate)) but your example has mail as an
attribute.  Thus:

(setq eudc-duplicate-attribute-handling-method
      (cons '(mail . duplicate) eudc-duplicate-attribute-handling-method))
