And the symbols for the duplication matching aren't as important,
it is enough if the reporting client transforms addresses in the unwind
address list into build-id + offset form, then it can be matched on the
server side too.  Only if you want to fuzzy match bugreports from different
NVRs, then offsets are not useful and symbol names only sometimes useful.
But the build-id + offset form can be transformed into more detailed forms
on the server easily.
