Mexican Coke with HFCS and/or sugar--what does that really mean?

My favorite local slice place sells Mexican Coke and Pepsi. Recently, the 12 oz glass bottles have a white rectangular sticker, barely attached, that in the ingredient list includes the above mentioned items. Who attaches the sticker and why? The bottler,importer or distributor? Why does it not list the actual ingredient, don't they know? Is it a marketing ploy to sell HFCS Coke at a higher price and to those who might otherwise shun the item? Tortilleria Nixtamal serves some of the best tacos in New York. They sell the same 12 oz Mexican coke but it lacks the little white label. Are they removing it?
