Comment (by uofaberdeendarren):

 The issue comes from this line here:

 `$query_result` is an array of `WP_Block_Template` objects. The
 `array_columns` tries to "pluck" out the IDs for each of the template
 parts, to compare the current file-based template id to the database ones
 to see if the template already exists.

 There is a difference in how `array_columns` works between PHP 5 and PHP
 7. PHP 7 works fine when using objects, but PHP 5 does not. See:

 That's why it works fine in PHP 7 because the return from `array_columns`
 does correctly contain the IDs of the templates, which will then stop the
 duplication. In PHP 5, the return is always an empty array, so the
 following conditionals don't think there are any database template parts,
 and therefore can duplicate them.
