Why does my gas tank sometimes whine when I stop?

This is due to vapor expansion and it is normal, especially on warm days. The pressure inside the tank is always changing and restabilizing as fuel is pulled out by the carbs, and air gets in to fill the space left. Add the slow process of gasoline vaporization to the mix, and you get a slight whine coming from the vents.
