Not sure about the versions (you're correct to say that the older Lilypond won't make the notes appear twice, while the newer does --- you can also try it in Lilybin if you click on the "Stable" button and change it to "Development"), however, you have a simple error in there that explains it.

This macro takes two Scheme pairs that define the left and right as well as the bottom and top edge of the markup. The markup itself can be bigger than the box you define with these ...

If you use this definition that looks just like a dynamic mark, mff= _ \markup { \dynamic mf \italic \teeny "2ème fois" \dynamic f } then the result is this:
