Sound tends to resonate in strange ways inside cars. I've been having these pop/crack/creak sounds and I'm convinced it's the way the tailgate is aligned. Pressure in the wrong spots I think pushes on the light bar across the tailgate. I've taken a tip from another section of this forum and put some tape around the tailgate striker (the thing the latch grabs onto) and that solved it for a little while. Tape doesn't last too long so back to the dealer it goes... (19.5 SVA)

I also think some of it comes from the plastic d-pillar covers and the rear spoiler. Both are thin plastic and creak and squeak when they rub together. I was getting horrible squeaking when going over bumps and it turned out to be that. I had to unscrew the spoiler and put some cloth where it meets the d-pillars to prevent the two plastic pieces from rubbing together when the body flexes. It helped quite a bit but I still get some creaks and squeaks.

I guess my headliner is more of a rattle on anything but smooth pavement. Sound comes from mid cabin.
Mine goes in today, I will share what the service department comes up with. I was going to attach a short video clip, but guess I can’t.
