GI Joe is filled with weird stuff like that.
Flint is listed as a Warrant Officer in the Army, but his rank has him at an E-5 pay grade.
Britain has warrants at NCO ranks, but in America they carry the same weight as their comissioned officer counterparts (in theory anyway). My father is a W-4 in the Army.
Instead of being a jack of all trades like normal officers, warrants choose a specialty, usually as pilots like Flint, and master it.
In reality Flint would out rank Duke. In fact, a lot of Joes outrank Duke, but that's a different story.
I completely agree that the 25th line is a complete "reboot" (for lack of a better term) for the Real American hero line, but i would have expected technical hiccups like that to be fixed. Not that it makes the toys any less interesting or less enjoyable.
We can all ignore the file cards anyway, but it would have just been cool to have all those things corrected.
Not a huge deal... anyway...
I think the tiger force one fixes it...
