    $\begingroup$ Can you add the blend file? My guess is, the reflection comes from the HDRI, assuming, you are using one for your reflections. $\endgroup$

How do you know if an object is shiny? Because other things are reflected on the surface...

What things?

Whatever is in the environment. If there is a sun in the image used as environment or if there is a light on the scene you can expect it to be reflected on the surface.
