Do newer appliance modules still make that "clicking sound"

Do newer appliance modules (am466) still make that "clicking
sound" when the relay is triggered ?
Same question for in wall (xps3) and inline (xpfm)
modules. Thx much

AM466:
Yes.
They are also much more CFL friendly and don't seem to have Local Control Sensing.
Real low current things like LEDs still glow dimly when off.

The way to kill the glow is a cube tap and a night light.  Plug the cube tap in the module and the night light on the other side of the cube tap and the lamp cord in the third side of the cube tap.   The night light kills the trickle current to the module so the CFL doesn't glow.
