Yes and yes.

Take it for a decent long drive at motorway speeds to let it complete the regen.

Whenever the DPF needs to , normally determined by a couple of pressure sensors before and after the filter.

It will only start the process when the system is above a certain temp.

Your cooling fan will be running as well , even though the engine temp is OK.

It just sounds to me like metal contracting too. - A little more "tinny" than I'd expect assuming it's a standard exhaust.

A DPF regen might make sense; that would certainly be getting the exhaust hotter than you'd expect.
