I think that what you are seeing is perfectly normal. One species, Malus trilobata from southwest Asia, has three- to seven-lobed leaves (superficially resembling a maple leaf). The fruit is also slightly different than your standard crabapple. The tree produces large white flowers and green fruits, which are sometimes flushed red.
