Default Starting noise

The last couple of times starting engine. Immediately after starter a growl like noise from front end. Just one quick growl then done. Once or twice on shutting down same noise. 2010'xc with only 20000 miles. No mods.

My XCT has been doing this for almost 2 years. Some say it's the starter, some say it's the one-way bearing. At no time has it not started, but sometimes it's quite loud and embarrassing. A howling screech coming from the starter.
