In the Google Pixel 5, Google has made a visible proximity sensor which blinks when it is being used.

Also there is no direct option included in the device to turn it off (including developer options).

The easiest way to disable flashing flashing dot is by disabling Flip to Shh option (Settings > Gestures > Flip to Shh).

In case if the Flip to Shh method doesn't work. Then you can manually disable the Proximity sensor from Apps Sensor Access.

This issue mainly appears if you have restored all data from old Pixel during the setup. So Restore your device again without backup.
