Maybe there are more than one kind of phenomenon that gets interpreted as "ghosts"?

Probably. The experience Atsali and Nadette had, when they went back to Mapimi, was pretty clearly of the "stone tape" variety, and it could easily have been interpreted as a haunting. This wouldn't tend to leave snacks behind.

Cross-universe leakage is another. Snacks are definitely a possibility.

Having a bunch of jogah (stone throwers or drum dancers) playing tricks, could easily be seen as a haunting. In this case, snacks might not placate the "ghosts", but a respectful offering of tobacco might easily do so.

Personally i see the term ghost as a catch-all for several different types of phenomenon.

Y'all've gotten me a bit confused.

As for the comic, I think the castle they're intending to visit is another weak spot between universes, like the school.
There is no such thing as a science experiment gone wrong.
