Hmm, strange.

How much exit snipe to you have?

A lot: My guess it the board is lifting and hitting the chip breaker. That sound appears to happen just before the cutting ends, likely after the in-feed roller is no longer supporting the board, and it lifts to smack the chip breaker. This would create a fair amount of exit snipe.
Check the height of chip breaker, in-out feed rollers, .vs. knives. Make sure the hold down springs on the feed rollers or chip breaker are not loose.

Another possibility is the anti-kick back fingers in front of in-feed roller are sticky, or making the noise as they spring back to normal?

PS – Suggest you follow the belt tension guide line in manual.
Too tight is worse than a little loose. If belts are too tight, will cause premature wear out on cutter head and motor bearings. It’s not hard to replace those bearings, but it’s 7-8 hours labor the first time you do one. Plus 1-2 hours to reset knives and all roller heights. :(

Best luck.
