May have been in your case.
The typical case is the lip on the rotor rubs the edge of the pad, which is why some slight pressure on the pedal stops the squeak.

My car had newer pads with no chance of the sensor being anywhere near the limit and they still made the noise. For thousands of miles, they made the noise.
