Why does my car make creaking noises when reversing?

I have a Volkswagen T-Roc and when reversing the car makes creaking noises. What is the cause?

This reads like the hill hold assist system disengaging. It's a device that holds the brake and prevents the car from moving forwards/backs until the clutch is engaged. If the car is very new, it will make a few noises as it wears in.
