I believe I'm experiencing the same issue, with a slightly different variant.

I have 2 separate PDFs that I'm merging. I use this line:

pdfMerger.mergeDocuments( MemoryUsageSetting.setupTempFileOnly()

However, I lose any fields on the second form that were named the same as the first (such
as "name" or "creditCard")

> When PDFs containing interactive forms are merged using Acrobat, fields with the same
name are merged into one. That's different to the current behavior of PDFBox which renames
to be merged fields so they have a unique name (see PDFBOX-3094).
> In addition Acrobat supports merging documents with interactive forms into collections
when keeping the existing (duplicate) fields is required.
