What sounds like a drip but isnt detectable?
I hear a drip under my sink or in the wall but can't find evidence. Searched in the crawl space, no leaks, can't locate the source. Was heard even when sink not used for 45 minutes. Could it be a venting issue?

Might very well be nothing but dripping sounds from inside the drain piping---

Water condensing in the vent pipe? a bit slowly dripping from the P-trap?.

Can you tell if the sound originates inside the drain pipe?

When I bought this house I went CRAZY trying to find a drip I was hearing at night. Ended up being water dripping down the downspout in one of my gutters (I have a 2-tiered roof/gutter system over part of my house).
