Will tracks be merged after Spotify decides to change the track titles?

Two weeks after the release of the new James Blake album, Spotify changed the titles to include featuring in the song titles. Now there's a huge discrepancy between what I scrobbled the first two weeks (and I really listened to that album) and what I am scrobbling now. 

Mile High -> Mile High (feat. Travis Scott & Metro Boomin)
Barefoot In the Park -> Barefoot In the Park (feat. ROSALÍA)
Where's the Catch? -> Where's the Catch? (feat. André 3000)
Tell Them -> Tell Them (feat. Moses Sumney & Metro Boomin)

Will marking the one version as wrong initiate the merging of the old titles with the new ones?

No, not yet, because we're not able to change the catalogue corrections dataset just yet.  However once we're able to, we will be using the user submitted corrections feedback (the "is this correct?" dialogue you see on every catalogue page), so please do use them to mark correct and incorrect tracks.

Where can I find this in the new design? Is it gone for good or just now when the design has been updated?

I still see it for every song, on the side bar on the right, in a song page, obviously.
It literally says:
Is Charlotte Adigéry - Paténipat the correct title for this track?

That's because you're among the users that still see the previous layout of the page.
The new one, under deployment yet, does not have this option.
It shouldn't be gone for ever, though; just temporarily. But when will this be back ... not an exact estimate; probably around the time when the auto-correcting mechanism is re-implemented to be in accord with the new design of the database.
