Hi, no this is not the cool down/ contracting of metal parts after a drive.
The only time I'll hear this noise is before I drive, or if I wake the car by opening the trunk or door to grab something.
One additional observation - the pace of the tapping eventually slows and then stops altogether. Usually takes only a minute or so, which is why I suspect it is a priming, but what do I know?
