Question Suspension Purge after parking??

I'm not exactly sure why but most times when I park and shut down my 2008 S550 base it sounds like the suspension is purging. Is this normal? If not what should I be looking for? Thanks in advance!

Mine does that too. Not a ton but it is happening. I get a quiet hiss for about 15 seconds but then it stops. I'll have to keep my eye on this thread.

I get what many call the post Farht Fart. Like a PSHH, almost akin to a truck's brakes releasing, but not as loud. It usually happens when I step out of the car and I just figured it was because the car was re-leveling (I'm not small, well not since I was 10.)
