Unfortunately, Lightroom flags ('Rejected'/'Flagged') are internal to Lr catalog: these flags are not imported from XMP sidecar files and not exported to XMP.

You may use standard XMP Label or Rating, than convert it to Rejected after culling:

1) Export XMP Sidecar files for your catalog (or selected files) from Lightroom: select files (all, or by-folder) and use Menu - Metadata - Save metadata to files to export XMP sidecar files

2) Cull with FastRawViewer, assign, for example one star for rejects and 2 star for keepers (or use some color label for rejects)

3) In Lightroom: select all files again and use Menu - Metadata - Read metadata from files

This will update ratings/labels from XMP files (i.e. set by FastRawViewer)

4) Create smart collection with rule 'rating is equal to 1 star' (or, if you've used label, create smart collection by this label)

5) Select all files from collection and set flag to Rejected.
