I've definitely seen some variation across seedlings and I'm beginning to think a lot of sellers aren't isolating their plants for pure seed. That might be why my supposedly mild ghost is the hottest thing in the patch.

That said, I've also seen huge swings in the heat of peppers over a season. Are you letting them sit a while on the plant once they've changed color and fully ripened? I've found that heats mine up a bit more, particularly when it is as dry as it has been, so maybe see if the mild ones show a little more heat if you leave them on a while longer. Sorry you're having so many come out not hot.

Might want to save your own seed from the hot one it you like it.
