I've seen it several times.
Frequently, boys in my area are registered with their local LDS troop. LDS units do this be default. All the male church members of the appropriate age are registered in the LDS unit regardless of their interest or participation. (I've even seen it done without scout/parent signatures before.)
Sometimes boys find that their local LDS unit does not provide the scouting program they want, so they search out a non-LDS unit that can provide the program they want.
I've seen it many times where a boy will go to his LDS unit on Tuesday, and then the non-LDS unit on Wednesday. When schedules do not overlap, he may do weekend activities with both units.
