I've been working hard to find a Professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right Professional can take a little longer than expected.

I wonder whether you're ok with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you.

Thank you!

This sounds like you have a problem with the alarm siren & is quite a common problem.

The alarm siren has its own tamper circuit & when faulty can cause the alarm to trigger - if faulty then the alarm will trigger by flashing the lights but no sound will be heard due to the fault.

I would always recommend having the car checked on Mercedes STAR diagnostic tool to check for codes and to see what circuits have triggered the alarm before nay work is carried out but this certainly appears to be a bad siren which will need replacing.
