But in the datasheet's clearly says it's for Li-Ion!

Datasheet 1

Datasheet 2

Am I missing something here?!

Every Lithium accumulator stores the energy in ionic form, even so called LiPoly!
Chemically every Li+-battery is a lithium ion battery, in Layman terms LiIons are metal can round cells (for Laptops and Vape stuff) while LiPoly is the "silver foil bag" stuff used in RC model stuff, cell phones and most other consumer electronics.
The chemicals used are different, as is the voltage, and also the specs: LiIons are usually lower power, but safer to handle.

The clue is the end voltage of 4.2V, it must match the batterys maximum voltage.

spec sheet for the tenergy 18650 2600 mah li ion battery shows a charge voltage of 4.20 +/- 0.02V, so not all li ion cell are limited to 4.1v

Yeah, same goes for the Sony US18650GR 2550mAh battery too!
