I'll bet that part of the IS system is MEMS gyroscopes ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vibrating_structure_gyroscope ) and that's where the sound is coming from.

It could be that they are left run, since it would take them a second or two to create the force needed to get up to speed. I don't know, but it could be an answer. Those small gyros wouldn't make much noise, or take much to keep them running, probably less battery than starting and stopping all the time. hmmmm.
