Default 4x4 hub noise upon start up

2003 xterra makes 4x4 hub noise only upon start up. Noise will go away after shifting 4x4 into high and back to 2 wheel drive. pulled hub off passenger side but could detect no damage. Is there an electronic actuator or relay that could be causing it not to lock completely out when the engine is turned off?

On a 2003, there are no electric parts or electronics; everything is manual. Usually when they make noise, it's a "clicking" noise, and when they "click," it's usually the other hub (the one that's not clicking) that is not working properly.
