About warmongerer vs warmonger

“Monger” is a very old word for “dealer.” An ironmonger sells metal or hardware, and a fishmonger sells fish. Warmongers do not literally sell wars, but they advocate and promote them. For some reason lots of people tack an unneeded extra “-er” onto the end of this word. Why would you say “mongerer” when you don’t say “dealerer”?
