Wouldn't the same thing happen to Jafar if Jafar was freed?

Yes. The same thing would happen to Jafar if Abis Mal did free him but, as seen, Abis Mal never wished for Jafar to be free. Jafar was still a genie because he still had the bands attached to his wrist.

Continuity mistake: During the dinner with the Sultan, the Genie cuts off his hand and it starts to tap dance. When it stops dancing you can see that the Sultan's eyebrows are gone. Then when the Sultan starts laughing his eyebrows pop back.

Trivia: "The Return of Jafar" is notable for being Disney's first direct-to-video animated sequel, and it served as the start a long line of such films in the '90s and 2000s. Though oddly, it wasn't originally meant to be a feature film. The movie instead began as an hour-long pilot for the "Aladdin" television series and was meant to air as a TV-special. But "Aladdin" series producer and co-director Tad Stones liked the story and characters so much, he pushed to expand the story and release it on VHS as a proper "sequel" to the first movie. It took some convincing, but eventually Disney executives fell in love with the idea and agreed.
