OK, thanks for explaining. I guess that makes sense.

This comment is outdated then:
   480   // Delayed update to avoid contention on the table lock

I'd suggest to rewrite it to:
  // Do atomic update here instead of taking StringDedupTable_lock. This allows concurrent
  // cleanup when multiple workers are cleaning up the table, while the mutators are blocked
  // on StringDedupTable_lock.

...or some such.
