Jablonski, or with the Polish diacritical marks, Jabłoński, is not all that rare of a surname in Poland. I looked in two places to try to answer your question. The first is www.herby.com.pl and it provides info from the 1990 census of Poland. That's getting a bit old, at this point, but will still give you a fair idea. In that year, about 47,000 people had the Jabłoński surname in Poland. Given a total population of about 38 million, you can calculate your percentage to be about 0.12%, or 12 people out of every 10,000. By comparison, Nowak is a common surname and there were roughly 220,000 of them in Poland in 1990.
Here is another resource:
https://nazwiska-polskie.pl/Jab%C5%82o%C5%84ski which will show you the distribution of the surname across Poland. It is based on more recent data.
I hope this helps you.
