Breaker hum on circuit with dead light fixture

Troubleshooting a dead light fixture. Noticed just now when I turned the breaker off a quiet hum went away. Turned on. Humming back. Off, dead silent. On, humming. You get the idea.

Only light fixtures are on this series and none of them were on when I was at the panel.

Is this possibly related to my problem?

Is there a low voltage transformer fastened to the side of the panel ?
If yes.... that could be a doorbell transformer and it may be on the same breaker.
