Will MySQLs query optimizer treat "IN(1,2,2)" as "IN(1,2)" ?

When determining the query execution plan, the MySQL query optimizer removes duplicate entries from an IN clause before it even looks at any indexes or data, doesn't it ? :scratchhead:

If it does, I'm thinking about padding a prepared statements bound params with the first element in the array. So things with one entry will look like "IN(1,1,1,1,1)" and the ones with multiples will be "IN(1,2,3,4,5)". My prepared statement will look like "IN(?,?,?,?,?)".
