This is what meets your eye, but not what happens:
In[105]:=
F[{x, 2, c}]F[{x, 1, f}] /.
HoldPattern[F[{___, a_, ___}]F[{___, a_, ___}]] :>
"yes, and same instance is " <> ToString[a]
Out[105]=
"yes, and same instance is x"
In fact this matches too:
In[108]:=
F[{x, 2, c}]F[{1, f, x}] /.
HoldPattern[F[{___, a_, ___}]F[{___, a_, ___}]] :> yes
Out[108]= yes
Your proposal in fact does not what desired:
In[103]:=
F[{1, 2, 3}]F[{4, 5, 6}] /. F[{___, a_, ___}]F[{___, b_, ___}] :> yes
Out[103]= yes
What was desired? I copy back (part of) the original post:
"I'm expecting 'yes' to be returned if any of the list arguments to F[]
contain the same value."
(Add: and of course not "yes" if not).
Now, we have seen, HoldPattern even is not enough, if matching arguments
have to be at the same position.
In[5]:=
F[{x, 2, c}]F[{1, f, x}] /.
F[{p___, a_, ___}]F[{q___, a_, ___}] /; Length[{p}] === Length[{q}] :>
yes
Out[5]= F[{1, f, x}] F[{x, 2, c}]
In[6]:=
F[{x, 2, c}]F[{x, 1, f}] /.
F[{p___, a_, ___}]F[{q___, a_, ___}] /; Length[{p}] === Length[{q}] :>
yes
Out[6]= yes
In[7]:=
F[{2, c, x}]F[{1, f, x}] /.
F[{p___, a_, ___}]F[{q___, a_, ___}] /; Length[{p}] === Length[{q}] :>
yes
Out[7]= yes
