Is it possible to identify sarracenia seedlings when they are this small? Not the exact strain or hybrid, but just the main species?

I'm sure there are some experts who have grown a lot of baby Sarracenia who could possibly identify or give a very good guess, but I don't think I'm one of them!

Once they start putting up mature pitchers, I would almost certainly be able to venture a good guess though...

At this stage, I don't think so. They need another year to be more identifiable.
