Absolutely flush and bleed if it sat. ABS light is on until you go ride. If it is on while riding, then something's up. Be sure to cycle the ABS system either with a jumper or the ABS wire harness available to order. If it sat, I'd cycle it a few times and re-bleed after the last one.
The sensors themselves can accumulate some white corrosion from the aluminum adapter plate, which will bridge electrically. Remove, clean and grease with some silicone grease (although anything will do) to prevent future corrosion. If they are seized in the holes, carefully rotate a bit back and forth until they break free. That is the most likely cause of ABS light staying on while riding.
Yes, check and disassemble/grease the rear brake pedal pivot whether it needs it or not. Brake light staying on can also be an issue.
Black round ABS adapter plates must be in the mating groove/bump so they don't rotate while riding. That will not cause an ABS light if out of place (as sensors are gapped correctly to the trigger wheel), but do get them in properly.
