Admin UI issues: PODS conflicts with Polylang #5365

Describe the bug
When Polylang is enabled, WYSIWYG fields of CPT can't be edited resp. it's not possible to place the mouse cursor into the field.

Also collapsing metaboxes from plugins such as SEOPress doesn't work anymore. But this is only when editing a CPT. When editing a normal blog post, collapsing the very same metabox works.

Thus looks like some conflict of Polylang with the PODS plugin.

To Reproduce

  1. Install the PODS plugin
  2. Create a custom post type
  3. Add a custom field of the type WYSIWYG (Visual Editor) to the custom post type
  4. Add a new entry (of the custom post type)
  5. TinyMCE field cannot be access with the mouse cursor. (= actual behavior)
  6. Disable Polylang plugin
  7. TinyMCE field can now be accessed with the mouse cursor. (= expected behavior)

Expected behavior
See step 7 above.

Update on this issue;
This only happens in the Gutenberg editor if translations for the CPT aren't enabled. It seems PLL or Pods<>PLL compat is running a script that shouldn't be loaded for these type of CPT.
