Can votes to close a question as a duplicate ever be over-ruled by moderators, if a sufficient argument is provided that the question is not a duplicate?

This appears to be a related question -- Should moderators step in when there is a disagreement over leaving open / closing posts?

    $\begingroup$ I think it's a dupe to the linked post (even on meta there are dupes :) ), unless something was unclear over there, then it's better to highlight it here. $\endgroup$

Moderators can close, reopen, delete, or undelete questions regardless of existing votes. They can also remove it from the review queue.

As to when/if they should, the question you linked to is a good discussion.
