Does this also occur in wood construction?

I don't know, but long ago I had a multistory wood-frame project in which the superintendent personally went around, on a weekend IIRC, after the floor sheathing was in place, pounding a sledgehammer down on each joist at each support point, to "settle them in."  I've never encountered that since then.
