I know of an STS that had a fire in rotor area in tough grain conditions. Straw was wrapping at the front rotor bearing. Owner and dealer found John Deere apparently offers an anti wrap package for the front of the rotor only available from the parts counter. They installed the kit and have not had a problem this year from what I have heard.
Owner said smoke was coming out the back of machine and could smell it in the cab but the source was very difficult to find. Got hot enough it did start the field on fire.
I don't know much about sunflower harvesting but if the trash is tough and has a tendancy to wrap check the front of the rotor near the bearing it could be the source of your problem.
