Default Scion xb 2012 whine noise

Hi guys, i just bought a 2012 xb automatic with 105k miles also 3yrs extended warranty. I noticed that when accelebrating there is whine noise when i hit the gas pedal, and its gone when i let off the pedal. The higher the rpm, the louder the whining noise. It doesn't happen when i shift on neutral. I bring it back the Elmore Toyota but the tech said my xB has CVT transmission so the whining noise is normal. But what i concern is i do research on internet and looks like my 2012 scion xB doesnt have CVT!!??! So, is there anything wrong with my transmission? What should i tell the tech to fix so i can get rid of the whining noise? I also attach a google drive link of my record for the noise.

Thanks for reading and look forward for your reply!

Definitely a driveline issue, trans or differential gears.
