Seance and Populate

I just wanted to confirm that I am not missing something on this interaction.

If Seance's ability to used to put a Borderland Ranger token onto the battlefield (that is also a spirit) and then I use Trostani, Selesnya's Voice ability to populate a copy, only the token formed from Seance's ability is exiled at the next end step.  The token produced by Trostani's populate has no trigger requiring exile correct?

As I read it the delayed exile trigger is set up by the enchantment and is not an ability of the token produced thus copies of the token are not affected.  Am I right or am I missing something?
Correct. The delayed triggered ability knows nothing about the token created by populate. It just exiles the token Seance's ability created.
Also note that the token created by populate will also be a spirit.

Additionally, contrasting populate with Parallel Lives or Doubling Season, where both tokens created by Seance in this case would be exiled

because it doesn't copy the token, it simply modifies how many Seance creates
