Please login to Partnernet, type 'NetBackup Licencing Guide' in the Search bar and download the pdf document.

You will see that Dedupe/Data Protection Optimization is licensed per Terabyte, not per Gigabyte.
I have never seen any license keys that says 'FRONT END GB'...

You will also see that Dedupe/Data Protection Optimization is addon license with Traditional per server licensing model or with capacity based model. 

If your question is: Can 'Data Protection Optimization' license be used for Dedupe? 
The answer is yes, this is the new name for dedupe license. (Also explained in Licensing Guide.)
