Yes, it's installed, but it doesn't seem to be actually used. The English
Wikivoyage has a bunch of log entries of its usage, the last in 2015. Other
Wikimedia sites have very few entries, or none at all.
My guess, and please do correct me if I'm wrong, is that it was used on
Wikitravel or Wikivoyage, and that it is still installed for backwards
compatibility so as not to break the logs or the global user accounts data,
but it is not completely compatible with other Wikimedia sites, so it can't
be used either.
If my assessment is correct, then it should be marked as "Legacy" on
translatewiki. This doesn't mean it will be removed; it will remain
available for translation. It just means that translators who want to focus
on completing the translation of extensions that are used on Wikimedia
sites will know that it's not used much, and it's not a high priority to
translate it, and will translate something more important first.

UserMerge extension actually used on Wikimedia sites?
I don't know if people *use* it, but according to
it is installed on
more than a thousand wikis, including all Wikimedia wikis.
