It is, more than likely, grafted to a completely different maple or sycamore cultivar. This is common, since leaving a Japanese maple to its original rootstock will make it a very slow growing tree.

Unfortunately, your photo did not come through. I will be unable to see the issue at hand.

I would recommend removing the suckers, and keep them removed. Eventually, they will stop coming up, with some persistence.
