Strange my zeiss 35/2.8 seems to perform very well. I do not get much flare with it let alone any reflections...

note that the pictures was taken through hotel window so perhaps some of the effects come from it.

I do see some flares in some of the lights. Really not much out of ordinary.

Some of your lights - mostly the ones in the lower left - are beginning to show the phenomenon albeit not extremely.

Also the sensor itself cannot do flares. This is complete non-sense. Light cannot be curved or bent. Light can be reflected off of reflective surface.

The phenomenon that is being described may be misnamed if it's being called a flare. It's more about internal reflections between the layers of films on top of the sensor. Light entering the sensor at extreme angles - small diameter aperture and / or far edges of the frame - seem to be the right conditions. The indicies of refraction of the various layers may be mismatched and/or have ever so slight air gaps.

Just please stop the sensor flare non-sense.

This seems to be regardless of any particular lens.
