DCT changing noises

Today when pulling into my garage and parking with my windows down, I switched from drive to neutral before pulling the parking break and shutting off and I noticed a sound. It seemed to come from underneath the car and sounded like the gears were moving and the sound was easily noticeable. I then shifted into reverse and then back and forth between first and second several times.

Does anyone else notice this physical clanging? I just noticed for the first time most likely because my Remus Race drowns out everything when at idle.

FYI it's not necessary to engage neutral before shutting down the car...

A normal clunking. You first get worried, then you know it's normal yet you still wonder but after 6 months you actually start enjoying it.

You'd here a very similar noise if you change gears (clutch in) in an MT.

My DCT has always sounded like the Millenium Falcon. I think it's normal.
