Yeah, don't worry about it. I've had that sound on pretty much every vehicle I've driven.

Anything from the xenon auto leveler's (if you have them) to the fbw throttle module checking for zero point.

Cheers!

Excellent point! An easy way to see if the noise you are hearing is the xenon auto levelers is by manually adjusting the aim. It'll make the same noise as the auto-leveling system but for a prolonged period of time.

At least you get a manual adjust for your auto levelers over there. Government doesn't trust us here to not blind the kangaroos so we have to get the screwdriver out :)

Cheers!
