About ducking time: Apple fixes up autocorrect in iOS 17

There's been a way around this for ages

Just add a few well chosen words to the ducking dictionary (in the Keyboard settings)

What this sort of learning behavior will be useful for is when you are typing last names that aren't in your contact list that are too close to a word autocorrect wants to change it to. I could add those to the dictionary to prevent it, but too often it falls in that gap between "happens often enough to be annoying" but "not often enough to be bothered to teach it that's a word".
