Vacuum pump under the driver's side headlight maybe? Others with 2011/2012 reported the same sound and it was a vacuum pump related to brake boost and the device is under the driver side headlight (general area).
But if they dealer replaced one of your catalytic converters and the noise is gone now...ok, maybe something was broke inside.
