The "look" is merely just a different phenotype and doesn't mean this is an annuum. Bonnie's red ghosts have two different phenotypes, at least in 2017, one smooth and one traditionally bubbly. I ended up with both phones, and one of the peppers had a scorpion tail.
It tastes like a ghost pepper to me. While yellow is generally "not as hot" it is still potent. Walls are maybe thicker than usual.
I think they just meant that it was showing annuum characteristics like one fruit per node and that calyx
Anyway, yours matches up to the label better than mine. Things might be different with my other golden ghost from a different store though.
