Imam Yahya Maeen was the disciple of Hadhrat Imam Muhammad; he narrated Jamey Saghir from Imam Muhammad. So obviously, no disciple can write such a sentence for his teacher. If you want more details you should study the preface of Elaaus Sunan in which the fact was disclosed with the references of many books:

وقال الدوري عن ابن معین: کتبت الجامع الصغیر عن محمد بن الحسن (علاء السنن، مقدمۃ 209)
