Based on my experience, it might well be rust on the rotors rubbing against the pads. I had the exact same issue (albeit on a a Civic) where pulling the handbrake up slightly would mute the rhythmic rubbing sound. Solution was to replace the rotors and pads
You're actually kind of right, the rotors had too much pitting on them and when the rear brakes heated up, they expanded that tiny bit, so that they touched the pads and caused them to vibrate.
I've got new rear disks and pads and the the issue has been resolved ever since.

(I solved this already a few weeks back, but forgot to finish up on this thread)
