Is calling someone 'ma'm''ma'am' offensive? Does it make any difference to calling someone 'madam'?

I had read it somewhere but forgot the source. But do some women consider being called 'ma'm''ma'am' offensive? I mean it's just 'madam' to 'ma'm''ma'am' then why this fuss? Also, is it 'ma'm' or 'ma'am'? I see both.

Is it more polite if you pronounce 'd' in madam? Or 'ma'm''ma'am' is more for the teachers in schools and only kids speak that way?
