Coil whine is mechanical resonance of the coil with the frequency of the signal passing through it. Physically, a coil is just loops of wire, sometimes with a core other than air. If the frequency of the signal is in resonance with the physical wires of the coil, the coil may vibrate.
There are many electrical parts/circuits which can cause whining noises, so don't just assume you are hearing coils. "Annoying buzzing/electrical sound(s) " are unlikely to emanate from a coil - you have something else making noise. Whining is caused by a part (or parts) physically vibrating.
Anyway as usual just my 2 cents!
