Lens on Nikon D7500 clicks audibly when zooming. Is this normal?

I recently took delivery of a Nikon D7500, the afp dx 70-300mm ed vr lens, and the 18-105mm ed vr lens. They were purchased refurbished directly from Nikon USA, with a 90 day warranty. In putting them through their paces, i am starting to notice an odd clicking sound from either lens when mounted and zooming back and forth in live view. The sound only occurs when in live view. Picture quality and camera operation do not appear to be  adversely affected. This is my first Nikon, and i never saw this issue in  any of my Pentax cameras.

Is this something i ought to be concerned about, or is this entirely normal in Nikon? Thank you for any light you can throw on this matter.
