The sensors are in the front pads.
It could be front or rear that are being detected ... Unlikely to be both.
If you take off your wheels and inspect your pads, it will be obvious which are well-worn down.
Also check your discs for corrosion or heavy wear.
The sensors are in the front pads.

On the MBs I have had, there tends to be a wear sensor on both sides at the front and on only one side at the rear.
I'm not sure if this applies to the OP's car.
Don't rule out the possibility of a faulty/damaged wear sensor/lead
