I planted them on damp (dead) sphagnum moss, and they all took on a stack of water... like... 4 times their existing volume or so.

So now they are pearls maybe half the size of a grain of wheat, with the dark seed in the center.

Is this normal?

Can I expect them to germinate?

No, this isn't normal for cp seeds, they don't form a shell of mucilage around the seed when sown. They may still germinate, but don't expect a carnivorous plant out of it.
We have all got taken at one point or another, I also fell for the blue Venus Flytrap seeds.
Wait and see what develops, you might get some basil or something to use in a Marinara.
