Bisq uses speaker on macOS

Something strange is happending: Once I start bisq (v 1.2.7 on macOS Catalina) I notice a very quiet noise exiting my speaker. I can only hear it if I turn up the volume all the way and listen carefully. But it is there. Anybody have an idea what this is about? Can anybody reproduce this?
I verified my download via PGP, also I checked if bisq tries to access camera or audio, but it does not.

Possibly this is related to this feature/workaround:

Playing a normally inaudible sound in the background should prevent the computer to go into standby mode.

I see. Nice hack. Thanks!
