I think it is highlighting a bug in the yocto-check-layer.

I've seen instances in the past where something has failed (or been aborted),
and the yocto-check-layer didn't cleanup after itself.

Due to this, we had various configuration files load multiple times (since the
layer was loaded multiple times) which caused problems throughout the system.

The yocto-check-layer needs to somehow verify that it's not added the same layer
multiple times.
