Solenoids have nothing to do with a car rattling.

Remind them a obvious rattle/clanking sound is typically caused by sizeable mechanical parts (like wastegates levers) clanking around, it 'rattles'.
Actually, with weak solenoids it won't allow the wastegate to have full movement if its not reaching the proper hgs. Can this also lead to rattle, I'm not totally sure but there is no evidence saying it would or wouldn't.
