Code Sample, a copy-pastable example if possible

# Your code here
>>> print(pd.isna(pd.Series(['A', 'B',], dtype='category')))
0    False
1    False
2     True
dtype: bool
>>> print(pd.Series(['A', 'B',], dtype='category').apply(pd.isna))
0    False
1    False
2    False
dtype: object
>>> print(pd.Series(['A', 'A',], dtype='category').apply(pd.isna))
0    False
1    False
2      NaN
dtype: category
Categories (1, object): [False]

Problem description

I would expect case 2 (['A', 'B',]) to be either like case 1 or case 3.
I think the correct behavior would be case 1.

Issue #21565 looks similar but not the same

Expected Output

0    False
1    False
2     True
dtype: bool

in all cases.

Behaves as expected if dtype='category' is omitted

Output of pd.show_versions()
