Your reply nails the answer to the original question...
Traeger pellets are not 100% of what you are purchasing. When you get Traeger hickory pellets the pellets are made of a blend of 30% hickory and 70% filler wood that is normally oak. I have had Traeger pellet users ask me, can you really tell the difference in wood flavors because I can't? and I reply the reason they can't tell the difference is because a large percentage of the pellet is oak and then explain Traeger's blend process.
BBQr's Delight is not 100% of what your purchasing either. Unless just like Traeger pellets you are purchasing oak pellets, then they are probably 100%.
