Is there any such thing as a bad macro lens?

Yes, yes and yes.  Most macro lenses for smartphones are bad.  This is mostly due to field curvature, coma, and a combination of them.

By the way, the diopter of a smartphone is defined by 250/(focal length) rather than 1000/(focal length).  Thus, a smartphone macro lens claimed to be 20x is not even 1:1.
