Olympus 300mm f4, autofocus noise

Hello everyone. I recently bought a 300mm from Amazon for a good price. The catch is that the original package was damage. The lens itself is spotless, looks new. However when I put it on my om1 the autofocus is really noisy. It works well and focus fast. I took this video of it. https://youtu.be/-YTAoPql7WU. Now you might have to crank up the sound a bit to hear it but when using it I hear distinctively. I tried to compare with my 100-400, I hear the same noise but much much quieter. I have to put my ear against the lens to hear it.

Is it supposed to be this loud? Could it have happened because somebody dropped it hence the damaged package? Can it be fixed?
