Kacking sound while sleeping?

Does you chinchilla ever kack while asleep? (The sound they make when they are annoyed?)

This is the second time I've heard Susu do this in the past month and she always seems to be very confused when I go check on her. I'm familiar with chin nightmares that result in barking but this is a new one. She makes the sound a few times repeatedly and then goes back to sleep or comes out for a snack as if nothing had happened.

She only ever makes that sound when I need to pick her up and she gets mad at me so I'm not sure what to think of this development. She seems fine but I'm not sure what she could possibly be dreaming of that makes her so upset.

For reference, this is the sound I mean (this video calls it spitting):
