Select Query Uses SDO_UTIL.RECTIFY_GEOMETRY Function Throws ORA-13199: the given geometry cannot be rectified

While running following select query failed with following errors in 12.1 but these query are working fine in 11g:
SELECT SDO_UTIL.RECTIFY_GEOMETRY(geom,0.05) FROM TEST_TABLE;
SELECT SDO_GEOM.VALIDATE_GEOMETRY_WITH_CONTEXT(SDO_UTIL.RECTIFY_GEOMETRY(geom,0.05),0.05) FROM TEST_TABLE;
ERROR at line 1:
ORA-13199: the given geometry cannot be rectified
ORA-06512: at "MDSYS.MD", line 1723
ORA-06512: at "MDSYS.MDERR", line 17
ORA-06512: at "MDSYS.SDO_UTIL", line 803
This is an effect on the improved geodetic geometry validation in 184.108.40.206.
The two geometries that do not rectify (id 15456 and 18710) were categorized as valid in 11g .
In 12c, improved validation now returns:
SELECT id, SDO_GEOM.VALIDATE_GEOMETRY_WITH_CONTEXT(geom,0.05)
WHERE id in (15456,18710);
15456 13350 [Element <189>] [Ring <1>][Edge <77>] [Element <623>] [Ring <1>][Edge <1>]
18710 13350 [Element <1>] [Rings 1, 53][Edge <1486> in ring <1>][Edge <17> in ring <53>]
In 11g, there was no need to rectify these two geometries because they were valid.
