I'm sorry to disappoint you Brock, but there might be an explanation to this seedling :  my knowledge of genetics i null.
But I've been contacted off-line by a genetics expert who explained to me that MTB X SDB crosses were absolutely possible, SDB being 12-12-8-8, or 12-8-8-8, or 12-12-12-8  therefore would be compatible with diplo 12-12 MDBs  (still, like pumilas,some rare SDBs are tetraploid 8-8-8-8, but it's not the case of Hot, involved in the first cross.)
For the second cross, it would seem that a bee got there first before i used High Master, TB being 12-12-12-12, which would make them  incompatible with12-12- MTBs.
Still, since there are still some MTBs in bloom now in the garden, i will try to systematically pollinate the just-opened-ones with TBs, just to test the theory.
That's exciting!

Beautiful Loïc!

You may have found the need for an MMTB class. I look forward to seeing
more from these efforts.
