    When manage-01 ("Rebuild Word Index") is run in parallel library xxx22, is it legitimate for xxx21's synonyms to point to xxx01? Can they be removed?


    Pointing to xxx01 is legitimate, but since the xxx21 is not pointed to by any xxx01 synonyms, the synonyms in xxx21 are extraneous and can be removed.
