Yes, but they didn't occur naturally, they were engineered.

Crossbreeding doesn't count as GMO. It's just artificial selection. GMO would be like inserting a gene from a different species using viruses or bacteria

What didn't occur naturally?

To my understanding, they picked a few different mutations with desirable features and began to crossbreed them in the hopes of breeding a mutation closer to their expectations.

That's different from GMO, i.e. directly "fiddling" around in the DNA of one mutation while trying to highlight characteristics that come closer to their expectations.
