Scenic Electrical Hum

I noticed yesterday when driving our 2001 Scenic home from work that I could hear a kind of humming noise.

I thought it was the stereo playing something wierd on the radio so I switched it off. Still there so I switched off the blowers to hear it better.

It's coming from the roof console with the control the sunroof and the interior light, and the noise is strongest around what looks like a speaker grille on the left side of the console.

I'm guessing these aren't speakers and are the sensors for the RCL but surely it shouldn't hum like this?

The sound reminds me of the noise a transformer in the mains sometimes makes.
