Hmm.. BA18/19/37 on the left and right hemispheres are not that far from each other... Funny things could happen if the activation is bilateral, especially if there are phase/latency differences between hemispheres...
Perhaps you could look for arguments along the lines presented here:

The connectivity constrain that's currently implemented in MNE-Python would disconnect such bilateral activations easily. Especially for weak effects that lead to 1-cluster solutions. That being said it's actually surprising that I do see any results in sensor-space since no position-correction was available for the system + data-set I'm currently working with.
