    according to your explanation duplicate rules will not run after the workflow rule.

    according to salesforce duplicate rules are executed again, if the wf rules field updates the fields the same fields with the same values.

In step 11.b, note that it states “… Custom validation rules, flows, duplicate rules, processes, and escalation rules are not run again.” It is specified in that step that those events will not be run again. Here is a link to the documentation:

    I just recently passed my PD2 exam, and all I can say is that this study was tremendously helpful! The topics were spot on, though I had to do additional reading in the Developer Notes and do Trailhead modules, especially on LWC and Aura components.
