I can reproduce pretty much the same image with my FE 55mm and shining my LED flashlight at the side of the mount while taking a long exposure photo with len cap on. It is little disturbing. ;(

Just don't take any long exposures, and you'll be fine.

Even if you take any long exposures, you'll be fine, as long as you don't shine a flashlight around the mount. This appears to be a completely artificial problem.

I see a surprising amount of "roll" between the 55mm lens and the a7r at the mount. One or other is not flat. The lens can swing sideways slightly, opening a gap of a fraction of a mm between the lens and camera mounts. However, 30s high ISO exposures with the lens cap on and a very bright LED lamp shining at the affected parts of the mount gives me nothing but black frames. I see movement but have no light leak.
