The sensor component consists of the sensor itself, an array of lenses to focus light into each photocell, a 3 colour Bayer matrix, and a filter assembly. The latter consists of one or more layers of glass or glass like material. There may be an Optical Low Pass Filter, a plain glass plate, and UV and IR filters. The latter may be glass or achieved by dielectric coatings. So you are cleaning a glass surface. They might even hard coat it, or make it from a hard glass. You still want to take care when cleaning it as grit could scratch it.
