Warning Gong When Locking / Unlocking

My 530d F11 LCI has recently started to make the warning gong noise when I lock and unlock the car. No warning message appears on the dash and there's no warning message history in the i-drive menu. Doesn't seem to be anything to cause the gong (i.e. headlights are off, battery seems strong, all doors closed etc.). Any ideas what it might be please?

A stupid question: Is it definitely the gong sound (as in seatbelt gong) and not a chirping sound along with the indicator lights?

Yeah, it's the double slow "gong....gong" every time. I'm becoming resigned to it being a fault, particularly as there's no corresponding display message.
