That makes sense...if the slab had an overhang, the problem would be diminished. However, seeing how there is no membrane/liner/flashing/etc., water could still enter at the back of the porch.

The top of the poured wall is above grade, and the downspout is channeled out through the backyard...pooling water at grade level is not an issue.
