Yes, the chocolategene is very rare in ragdolls in Sweden, and the chances that both the parent cats would carrie the gene is close to zero.
Even though Samira's father's father is registrered as lilac in the pedigree, I know for a fact that the cat is actually blue.
But this summer, I will mate Samiras daughter from her last litter, Tifa, to a lilacpointed male, one of the few we have in Sweden (we have two). I'm so happy I got the chance to borrow this male, even though I most likely won't have any chocolates or lilacs in the litter, since Tifa does not carrie the gene (at least not very likely). But they will all be guaranteed carries of the gene, and that alone is very exciting!
