Does Google penalize for multiple instances of the same internal link?

I am trying to figure out why when I type "site:" and my url into google that it only shows 7 out of 2000+ links (all but the 7 are omitted).

The site does have about 3 instances of the same link for each product (due to the design of the site)...is there a term for this? I thought this was called "Duplicate Content", but I have since learned that "Duplicate Content" refers to when you copy text from another url.

BTW, the reason there are 3 or more instances is because there are 2 ways to browse products, 1) via the product manufacturer name, 2) via the product type...then, there is the site map which also lists every product.

Is this causing a problem potentially? I was thinking about disabling the site map and browse by product type and leaving only browse by manufacture.
