Apple butter contains apples. Applewood smoked bacon if it’s not made with liquid smoke, is from the woodsmoke of apple trees.

Here’s their website. some of the products have an ingredients list. Otherwise there’s a phone number, and an email icon to ask more specific questions. I poked through the website and saw no mention of apples, other than apple wood smoke. And of course the name.

No. It’s just a brand name.

It is extremely doubtful that Applewood bacon, butter and other products they produce include apples.

The definition below may give you a clue as to why they company named themselves Applewood:

Applewood is a type of wood that comes from apple trees. It is often used for its smoke in cooking and grilling because it produces a mild, fruity, and slightly sweet smoke, ideal for smoking poultry, game birds, and pork.

They may use wood from apple trees to smoke their bacon etc.

Apple butter is by definition apples cooked down to a thick paste..

Applesauce is a fairly quick process, cooked apples run through a food mill. Apple butter is basically concentrated apple sauce, cooked down even more until it’s thicker, silkier, and more intensely apple flavored. Like the difference between tomato sauce and tomato paste, essentially

Applewood smoked bacon is a pleasingly sweet, yet milder smoked bacon. This cut is smoked over apple wood chips infusing the bacon with a hint of sweetness after being dry-cured. This bacon is recommended for a customer who is not used to the stronger Hickory Smoke or does not like the stronger hickory smoked flavor. https://blog.broadbenthams.com/subtle-flavor-distinctions-broadbents-bacon/
