I’ve noticed a few times where someone says something like “Did you made...” or “Did you worked...” when asking questions.

Is this some kind of unofficial talk or is it completely incorrect grammatically?

Your second guess is the right one: it’s completely grammatically incorrect. Not even children talk that way.
