On my Mac with Mathematica 8.0.4.0 there are no duplicates of the Method option.

$Version

"8.0 for Mac OS X x86 (64-bit) (October 5, 2011)"

Select[Options[#], #[[1]] === Method &] & /@
 {DensityHistogram,
  ListPointPlot3D,
  ProbabilityPlot, ProbabilityScalePlot,
  QuantilePlot, SmoothDensityHistogram,
  SmoothHistogram, SmoothHistogram3D}

{{Method -> Automatic}, {Method -> Automatic}, {Method ->
   Automatic}, {Method -> Automatic}, {Method -> Automatic}, {Method ->
   Automatic}, {Method -> Automatic}, {Method -> Automatic}}
