The bulbils are not true seeds. Some hardneck varieties can produce true seeds, if the bulbils are removed and the flowers get pollinated. I have read that the varieties which are closer to the original wild garlic should be easier to get produce true seeds.

I agree about the books of Meredith and Engeland, both are excellent sources of information.
