You are right, Manuel Ponce was not the composer of "Cielito Lindo." However, he is listed as composer on the album credits, which you can see under the "Images" tab. The database records the information provided on the disk, in a uniform manner, whether correct or not. That is just a library standard.
Hopefully, we can add notes to correct these label errors in the future. Informed listeners like you help us improve the information, and we appreciate it.

Thank you so much for publishing this website. It has been really helpful for my research. Just one detail: Manuel M. Ponce is not the composer of "Cielito Lindo," unless he's the arranger for this version. (?) Well, just thought I could help.
