Once upon a time D'uccles were the only breed or at least only breed almost anyone had heard of that had the mille fleur pattern.
It was the original and for decades they were just referred to as mille fleurs so it may be a pattern not a breed but for some of us mille fleur when said alone will always mean the MF D"uccles.
