Shucked WD White labels making weird noises


I’ve shucked two WD Elements 12 TB (WD120EMFZ) about two months ago. Now (I think both) the drives are making following noise:

I am not sure if both drives are making the noise, since they are part of a ZFS mirror and I didn’t wanted to disconnect one of them yet. It is not periodically and seems to be connected to the drive activity.

Anyone encountered something similar with our drives?
