I reckon the noise is coming from the alarm sounder which is located behind the carpet in the location you describe. It will give a continuous tone if you lock the car when a door isn't closed fully. On my tourer the tailgate needs a good slam so often it doesn't close right and the tone you've heard is the result. If yours has the opening tailgate glass agaain make sure it's closed tight too.
This could also explain the battery problem as the boot light will stay on obviously draining the battery. It's also worth checking that all other interior lights go off when you lock the car as a faulty microswitch in a door will cause the same syptoms.
