That area sticks out further then the rest of the liner and might be rubbing against the tyre. It will deform as the tyre keeps hitting it, reducing the amount of rubbing you might hear.

...or it might be just rubbing against the wheel arch itself.
I'm pretty sure its rubbing on the wheel arch itself, there isn't much in it a slight roll should do it I reckon!
