I do think you may be seeing the grafting joints of the Weeping Cherry Tree.

A Weeping Cherry has two parts. The roots and the trunk, the rootstock is actually a fast growing wild Cherry that has been trained into a single straight trunk.
The weeping part or top part is either a white or pink Weeping Cherry and it is grafted onto the trunk. The two parts are grafted together at approx.
5 feet from the ground.
This graft point creates a graft scar.
I believe this is what you are describing.
