The issue isn't about the contacts counting, the issue is what
constitutes a dupe. Under AMSAT rules, working the same station on
different satellites does not result in a dupe. Under ARRL rules,
working the same station on different satellites results in a dupe
since "satellite" is a single band.
The way that is worded does not make that entirely clear.

Additional contacts DO count for your QSO count (unless prohibited by rule 126.96.36.199). Read section 7 of the Field Day rules and in particular section 7.3 and it's quite self explanatory.
