BUG: Merge commits are displayed by `--cherry-pick` despite on they introduce same change




The `--cherry-pick` option states:

>Omit any commit that introduces the same change as another commit on the “other side”


For next git command I see next tree:

    $ git log --graph --decorate --pretty=oneline --abbrev-commit --cherry-mark --boundary --left-right
    
    <   bc2820d (openapi3) Merge branch 'openapi3_exception_handling' into openapi3

    o f5b06ed Assign some defaults

If I want to see only new commit I add `--left-only` option and get merge commits in output.


    <   bc2820d (openapi3) Merge branch 'openapi3_exception_handling' into 
    <   aa60f0a Merge branch 'hide_temporal_interface' into openapi3

This commits introduce same change as another merge commit on the "other side"
Thus they should not be displayed
