I have encountered this issue with A7R and metabones adapter so I ended up flocking insides of the adapter with optically non-reflective paper, and it mostly mitigated the issue. It's still there but tolerable.

Here's a shot that produced a starburst effect, and no flares, in the moon or the lights on the side. It's at f9, but result's pretty much the same at f11.

A7R + Metabones 3 + Zeiss 21mm f2.8 ZE, 30s @ f/9

I think you're also getting some help from your lens. It's designed for a longer registration distance and therefore isn't passing rays at such extreme angles.

So it is the lens then not the sensor...
