If the flare is coming from a relatively sharp edge you may have problems suppressing it because there is some refraction there. I discovered a similar problem in my Rolleiflexs. These cameras have internal baffles to reduce flare from light reflected from the insides of the camera box. I discovered that there were flare lines at top and bottom from reflections from the edges of the baffles. They are coated with a vert matt paint which appears to have some sort of flocking in it, nonetheless the reflection is there. I tried touching up an edge with the Krylon paint, it made no difference. I don't have an answer for this.
I have had success with the Krylon paint in eliminating reflections from the interior of view cameras. In particular, my ancient Agfa/Ansco cameras have a deep rebate just inside the film mask. This can cause a reflection along the edge of the film. The Krylon paint pretty much eliminated this.
I can see the flare streaks you are complaining about quite easily. I wish I had a sure fire answer. However, try the paint, it may just do the job.
