I have both native Z and F lenses.

No lens: just a quiet “snick” as (presumably) the VR system initialized.

Z lens: that plus a second quiet sound, presumably the lens aperture.

FTZ: “snick-chukka-zink” - three sounds as the FTZ also initializes. The FTZ aperture lever moves up and down, which adds the extra sound.

It is quiet enough I have never thought about it other than, “hmm. So the Z cameras sound like this, I guess.” Not a criticism - did you ever hear the mirror slap of a Hasselblad 500c, or the motor of its EL variant? MUCH louder, and on every shot.

My opinion: this is not something you should worry about.

Sure, BUT

whatever camera you mention, they make noise when they focus (VR) or shoot (mirror slap). Nikon could at least avoid to make noise when pressing any button that's not focusing. It has no sense activating FTZ when I scan the environment on the viewfinder, when I am checking for an info o scrolling photos or doing anything else. This is something that can be avoided. This means disabling FTZ functions for everything else but focusing.

I am not about to pretend I am a Nikon engineer or know better than they do. Your displeasure is noted but I suggest you do the same.
