Duplicate records when downloading recently updated contacts using API

Duplicate records when downloading recently updated contacts .
We encountered another issue with downloading HubSpot Contacts using the API. When getting recently updated contacts using vid and time offsets, duplicate contacts were received in the batches. Secondly, when using the time offset and vid-offset, in some of the batches the time-offset received from the previous batch is reset to latest time-stamp. Would you be able to give more details about why these two behaviours are happening ?

It is also mentioned on your page that the response is sorted in descending order … but this is not the same as a newer time-offset gets used sometimes in between downloading the next batches.

Also, I wanted to ask you what is the use of “Form Submission Mode” ? Does it affect the way the records are sorted ?
