Best practice is always to veneer both sides to balance forces. This is the predictable result of not doing so. It is often not that necessary when the substrate is restrained as in part of a box etc and where the veneer is modern see-through thickness but with your substantial veneer thickness I’d bet that is the problem. I would try even at this time to apply a crossband veneer on the bottom of the plywood. Try for at least 1/16” if you can.
Or you can live with the cup. The problem is it may not be finished cupping…...
