And the GN number of the 5R/5N is 7, and not 12.

Please kindly see the DPReview comparison website:

Whilst I haven't checked it in person with the flash meter ... I trust DPReview to get it right.

Maybe DPreview got it wrong?

The official Sony name designation is HVL-F7S, and the 7 stands for the GN, like the HVL-F20S, HVL-F20AM and the HVL-F43AM.

HVL-F7S

HVL-F7S

Maybe it is wrong, but visually, the head is much larger than the pop up flash on NEX 6 and NEX 7 and I have independently read n one of the magazines that it is comparable to pop up flashes on DSLRs.  There is a considerable size difference between F7S and F20S .... I have seen the F20S. But just as I don't believe that F7S has only GN7, I don't believe that F20S has the GN20 ....
