Are these style arms  unusual?

Yep. It is not uncommon for the edges of the style arms on occasion mimic the edges of the standards but most often to a lesser degree. One noticeable exception is when one encounters serrated or saw toothed style arms. I have yet to see these expressed in the standards.

Yep, your seedling is special in that it expresses a reverse of the _expression_ norm I have most often observed here. Dreamin' some, can you imagine an arilbred cross where the style arm becomes more prominent, the standards less, and the falls perhaps recurved?

Woe be to those believin' there's nothin' left for hybridizers to do. There be a whole unexplored dimension inside iris blooms and bloom margins.
