The reason I suggested placing the trans in neutral then applying the brakes was to help isolate the noise possibly to a drive train problem that showed up when the brakes were applied. Can you do that?

Did you swap the wheels to see if the noise moved?

There should be no movement of the parts except turning.

Coast will not be the same as applying the brakes immediately after taking it out of gear.
