Lagarde herself twitted on the 3rd of July, claiming that banknotes with her signature would be in circulation the following week. Exactly a week later, an EBTor tried to register the first Lagarde notes. I does not seem to be "bank mistakes".

But there are only very few reported so far (5 or 6 known to me, 3 of them on eurotracer.net).

Very few EBTors have found them in the wild but I guess that is normal for every new batch of banknotes. There's quite a bunch of them sold or for sale at Delcampe and eBay.

This is, of course, the first time a new signature is introduced during a pandemic, which has had an effect on circulation patterns and this hobby.
