Indeed, this is not an appeal. The fielder could only appeal the runner leaving 1st base early, because the specific violation that the runner committed would have been leaving 1st base. If the fielder does anything else other than touch 1st base, I would not credit him with making an appeal, and would not call the batter out. I would do nothing, unless I was asked to call the runner out on appeal. If the defense appealed this to me, I would say that there is no appeal, and the runner is safe (with a signal).
